KETO LOW-CARB MONTREAL CHICKEN QUARTERS (HEART HEALTHY)
Keto Low-Carb Montreal Chicken Quarters is a dish I prepare on a regular basis. I’m always looking for different recipes to season chicken quarters (thigh and drumstick). In my household, we all love the dark meat of chicken, including the kids (1 Shepard and 1 kitty dogs). I’ve noticed in checking out chicken recipes that the term “legs” refers to the drumsticks. When cut apart, one is the thigh and the other is the drumstick. So, in this recipe, I refer to chicken quarters, which includes the thigh and drumstick! Our favorite.
WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB MONTREAL CHICKEN QUARTERS?
Keto Low-Carb Montreal Chicken Quarters are nutritious. My husband Shawn and I prefer chicken legs over breasts because they possess higher fat, which we prefer as we both lift weights. Fattier cuts are better for building muscle. If you’re aiming to lose weight you may want to stick to lower fat chicken breasts. Legs are also a great choice for a Keto Low-Carb lifestyle as maintaining a good source of daily fat is ideal.
Dark meat is also higher in myoglobin. Myoglobin is an oxygen-carrying protein that gives dark meat its reddish color. The greater the myoglobin in the flesh, the darker the meat and the richer the nutrients.
Chicken thighs and drumsticks are an excellent source of iron and zinc, supporting the immune system. This dark meat also offers higher quantities of B vitamins thiamine, niacin, and B12,) to regulate our metabolism.

*Wine Tips: To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, choose low-carb, low-sugar, and low-alcohol wines that are free of additives and artificial coloring. Include your wine carb macros as part of your meal. Remember, your liver will process alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Your body will also metabolize alcohol as fuel before using food. This can slow fat burning and may cause your body to store carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Alcohol consumption also stimulates the appetite. So, drink low-sugar, low-carb, and low alcohol wines in moderation.
