What vegetables go with mustard chicken?

For this dish, I used collard greens and radishes. Not only are these vegetables super low in carbs, but they also add an incredible depth of flavor and texture to the dish.

If you aren’t a huge fan of greens or radishes, check out my keto vegetables list to see if anything else fits the bill.

I’ll be honest with you though; vegetables are optional. The yellow mustard marinade adds a lot of flavor to the chicken all by itself. I, however, love veggies and try to incorporate them into most of my dishes. We all tend to focus so much on macronutrients, but micronutrients are essential on the keto diet too!

What is the mustard chicken marinade?

Yellow mustard, olive oil, garlic powder, and salt. That’s it! I use a 3:1 mustard to oil ratio and merely season it with garlic and salt. Let your chicken marinade overnight in the refrigerator if you have the time.

If you’re throwing together dinner at the last minute, let it marinade for a minimum of 10 minutes. We’ve all been there, I feel you! It will still be really tasty and stay true to the “easy mustard chicken” name.
