Grilled Grapefruit Chicken

I love grilling in the summer! If you love grilling too, you will LOVE my recipe for Grilled Grapefruit Chicken!

My recipe testers loved this recipe so much that it is in their weekly meal planner!

Grapefruit LMNT now a Permanent Flavor!

Do you love Grapefruit LMNT? We sure do in our house! It is Kai’s favorite flavor. Now you can get it anytime as LMNT has now made it a permanent flavor! To celebrate I made this recipe for Grapefruit chicken and it tastes amazing!!


There’s not actually any grapefruit in my recipe for Grilled Grapefruit Chicken. Instead, I used LMNT Grapefruit Salt to marinade the chicken!

Why do you need more electrolytes on a ketogenic diet?

When you adopt a lower-carb way of eating, insulin levels in the body drop. This signals the kidneys to excrete electrolytes at a higher rate (particularly sodium).

If these electrolytes are left unreplaced, you can very quickly become electrolyte deficient and experience unpleasant symptoms like muscle cramps, headaches, brain fog, dizziness, and fatigue. These symptoms will persist until you adequately replace electrolytes. This is sometimes called the keto flu.

The good news? Symptoms begin to reside within just 15-30 minutes of properly replacing sodium, magnesium, and potassium.

How to replace electrolytes and maintain ketosis.

Most electrolyte products on the market today are either loaded in sugar or woefully lacking in electrolytes. So for years, I recommended that folks simply add more salt to their food and be conscious that they are eating foods rich in magnesium and potassium.

However, I found that many folks still needed to supplement electrolytes because they are physically active, live in hot climates, intermittent fasting, or struggled to get adequate servings of electrolytes with their meals.

That’s why I’m thrilled by good friend Robb Wolf created LMNT Recharge, a tasty electrolyte drink mix with a meaningful dose of electrolytes, which he developed with low-carb and keto communities in mind. LMNT includes:

  • An optimal ratio of electrolytes
  • All natural ingredients
  • No sugar
  • No fillers
  • No gluten

The ingredients speak for themselves. Compare LMNT to other electrolyte products on the market today:

Other electrolytes just aren’t setup in the right ratios for a ketogenic or carnivore lifestyle. You need more salt, no sugar and the right forms of magnesium (most use oxide where LMNT uses malate which is great!).

They also come in three great flavors, two sweetened with stevia! Perfect for making my Grilled Grapefruit Chicken!
