Can you eat jerk chicken on a keto diet?

Jerk chicken legs

Yes you can. Chicken is encouraged on a keto diet since the protein intake will form a large percentage of your macronutrients.

The thing you do need to be aware of though is the contents within the jerk chicken marinade or seasoning. Typically, there will be sugar, which will add to your carbohydrate intake.

However, you can simply add a small serving (1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon) to a large mix (1-2kg) of chicken to make the jerk chicken mix.

This should allow you to keep your carbohydrate intake low so your body will remain in ketosis.

It’s likely that you will consume 100-200g of jerk chicken in your meal, which should keep your body in ketosis.
