Keto Asian chicken with peanut coleslaw

Tired of humdrum chicken legs? Add an Asian flare. A tamari-based marinade with garlic and ginger infuses the chicken meat with zesty flavor. Served on a bed of coleslaw with a spicy peanut sauce, then garnished with sliced avocado, lime and cilantro, this meal is an exotic trip without leaving home.


Chicken and marinade

  • 2½ lbs chicken thighs (bone-in with skin)
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste,or fresh minced ginger and garlic
  • 2 tbsp tamari soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper

  • 8 oz. red cabbage, finely sliced
  • 6 oz. bean sprouts
  • ½ red chili pepper, finely sliced
  • (2¼ oz.) carrot, julienned
  • 1 oz. fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
Spicy peanut dressing

  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • ¾ cup mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise
  • ½ tbsp sriracha sauce
  • ¼ tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp tamari soy sauce
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste

  • (7 oz.) avocado, diced
  • 1 lime, quartered
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro (optional)
  • 1 tbsp red chili peppers, finely sliced (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients. Place the chicken in a ziplock bag, and add the marinade to completely coat the chicken. Set aside for 10 minutes at room temperature.
  3. Place the chicken thighs, skin-side up on a broiler or baking pan. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the internal temperature is 165°F (74°C), and the chicken is golden brown. Set aside to cool and then slice into 2″ x 1″ (5 x 2,5 cm) slices.
  4. Add the coleslaw ingredients to a large bowl, and in a smaller bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour it over the coleslaw, and give it a good mix!
  5. Divide the coleslaw into individual serving bowls, or leave in the current bowl. Garnish with the sliced chicken, diced avocado, chili, and a lime wedge. Another option: Serve the chicken thighs with the coleslaw on the side.
