Another Summer Mediterranean classic, this 30 Minute Low-Carb Summer Chicken Tray Bake is one of those dishes that I turn to again and again. The reason is that it delivers maximum flavor and taste in 30 minutes. It’s also low-carb with only 8 g of net carbs per serving as well as being dairy-free and gluten-free.


I’ve been cooking various versions of this recipe for years and it is such a perfect low-carb summer dish. It’s got all the great Mediterranean flavors like olives, tomatoes, lemon, and prosciutto. There’s no need to cook a vegetable side dish as you roast tomatoes and asparagus along with the chicken. It couldn’t be easier. Spend less time cooking and more time enjoying time with friends and family!

Low-Carb Summer Chicken Tray Bake Variation Ideas

To make variations of this dish, you could add different vegetables such as cauliflower or broccoli. It’s also lovely if you throw in some woody fresh Mediterranean herbs such as oregano and thyme, with the tomatoes at the start. You could use different types of olives or try pancetta instead of the prosciutto.

To serve, this dish works beautifully with some Parmesan cheese grated over the top (skip if dairy-free) and a few torn basil leaves scattered over.
