Whole30 + Keto Herb Roasted Chicken

This Whole30 + Keto Whole Roasted Chicken is tender and juicy on the inside with perfectly crispy skin on the outside. It is so simple but has so much flavor. I make this for my family almost once a week and they love it every time. You are going to want this on your weekly menu!

What You Need:

  • 4-5 lb Whole Chicken
  • Butter – I love KerryGold (use ghee to make it Whole30)
  • Garlic
  • Herbs – Thyme, Sage, Rosemary
  • Lemons
  • Salt & Pepper

Let’s Cook:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425′
  2. Use paper towels to pat your chicken dry
  3. Add softened butter (ghee for Whole30) to a small mixing bowl, along with the fresh herbs, lemon zest and minced garlic. Mix to combine and use hands to rub the mixture all over the chicken
  4. Season liberally with salt and pepper and place the chicken in a dutch oven or oven safe dish and bake for about an hour and a half (or until internal temp reads 165′ in thickest part of the chicken)
  5. Once done, remove from the oven and let rest for about 20 minutes before carving

    Oh my goodness – this recipe is incredible! I cook a LOT of chicken…. probably 5 nights a week or so, and this has become my favorite recipe! The chicken comes out so juicy with DELICIOUS flavor. I can’t recommend it enough! Even my husband who teases me about how much I cook with chicken helped himself to 3 servings! 😱 This would be a great recipe to use for a family Sunday dinner, or that go-to recipe when you need to impress the in-laws 😉 Thank you @thebetteredblondie for this scrumptious dinner!
