The holiday season is filled with sweet treats like low carb pecan pie bars, snowball cookies, and cheesecake. But, for those of us looking to balance out those sweet treats, or for those of us (like myself) who are more into savory recipes, we’ve got you covered! This Savory Almond Butter Chicken Thigh Skillet is actually the best of both worlds; savory and sweet. It has predominantly savory flavors with a hint of sweetness from the new Now Foods Organic 1:1 Monk Fruit replacement. We guarantee you won’t even need a sweet treat after a dish like this! 

We prepared this easy-to-make, one-pan meal for meal prep this week, but also plan on serving it as a main dish option on our holiday table. A chicken dish like this accommodates the dietary needs of many of our guests, so it’s a no-brainer when it comes to including this recipe! 

From low carb to gluten-free, to low glycemic, grain-free, high-protein, whole-ingredients, etc. It accommodates just about everyone, minus your vegetarian and vegan friends. However, if you have some guests that don’t eat meat, you can easily swap the chicken thighs in this Savory Almond Butter Chicken Thigh Skillet for Tofu! It has the same great flavor, sans the meat. 

Say what?! An organic 1:1 monk fruit in a savory dish?

Yes, you read that right! If you have never tried sweetening up a savory dish, we highly recommend it. They deliver all of the flavors you crave in a way that you can enjoy at any meal of the day! Plus, the sauce, which is sweetened with the organic 1:1 monk fruit, is not just limited to this dish! As mentioned above, it is delicious with tofu! But, it also works so well with ground beef, roasted cauliflower, served over a stuffed baked potato, mixed with lentils, and drizzled over your favorite buddha bowl. 

We love to keep a jar of this sauce on-hand for jazzing up a quick weeknight meal. When we make a large batch, we double all of the ingredients, place them into a glass jar, shake them up (or mix), and then sealed and keep in the fridge until ready we are ready to use it. 

So, whether you are trying to add some new flavors to your holiday table or just looking to make your meal prep so much more delicious, organic 1:1 monk fruit we recommend grabbing a bag of , throwing on your favorite holiday songs, and get cooking in your kitchen!
