Mississippi chicken is typically made with 5 simple ingredients:
- Chicken (You can use chicken thighs or bone-in split chicken breasts, chicken drumsticks, or boneless chicken)
- Ranch Seasoning Mix (either packaged or homemade)
- Chicken broth
- Pepperoncini Peppers (jarred)
Is Mississippi Chicken Keto and Low Carb Friendly?
Yes! It is an incredibly easy addition to a family dinner that everyone can enjoy, and it is keto and low carb friendly. I’ve even included a link to a keto-friendly bun option in the post below if you’d like to make a low carb sandwich.
How Do You Make Crock Pot Mississippi Chicken?
The first step is to add some butter and sear the chicken in a skillet. Browning the chicken is not mandatory but adds incredible flavor to the dish! You can also make this dish without butter if you prefer. Just replace the butter with your choice of fat. Olive oil would be my next preference.
If you’re wondering what kind of chicken to use, it depends on what type you prefer. Chicken breasts have less fat, so if you’re on a keto diet, choose bone-in chicken breasts! Bone-in chicken thighs (or even drumsticks) have more fat and will result in more tender chicken.
