Keto oven-baked chicken in garlic butter

Keto oven-baked chicken in garlic butter


  • 3 lbs chickens, a whole bird
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 513 oz. butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Season the chicken with salt and pepper, both inside and out.
  2. Place chicken breast up in a baking dish.
  3. Combine the garlic and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. The butter should not turn brown, just melt.
  4. Let the butter cool for a couple of minutes.
  5. Pour the garlic butter over and inside the chicken. Bake on lower oven rack for 1-1 ½ hours, or until internal temperature reaches 180°F (82°C). Baste with the juices from the bottom of the pan every 20 minutes.
  6. Serve with the juices and a side dish of your choice.


If you don’t have a meat thermometer, another way to tell the chicken is done is to poke a skewer between thigh and breast. The juices should run clear, not pink.
