This herbed butter roasted chicken is the juiciest chicken you will ever sink your teeth into. Packing the butter and seasoning between the breasts and the skin locks in the flavor and keeps the chicken moist all throughout the cooking.
How do you cook a whole chicken?
Have you ever tried to make an oven roasted chicken recipe only to end up with dry, bland chicken? Don't worry, I think we have all been there. There are a couple of specific things you can do to avoid this. First, you'll want to add chicken stock to the bottom of the roasting pan, which will help to kept the chicken moist and juicy.
Next, make a compound butter recipe, using grass-fed butter and fresh or dried herbs. Then you pack half of the compound butter between the skin and the breast of the chicken, which helps to lock in the moisture and makes for an incredibly juicy and flavorful roasted chicken recipe.
Finally, you slather the remaining compound butter all over the top of the chicken. Lastly, as you are roasting the chicken, you want to periodically baste the top of the chicken with the drippings from the pan, which will make a super crispy chicken skin. Delish!!
Honestly, you can serve it with anything you want, it pairs perfectly with just about any keto side dish recipe. I like to serve this recipe as part of my low carb Thanksgiving feast. There are a lot of years when our gathering it simply too small to cook an entire turkey and making a roasted chicken instead, makes for the perfect keto Thanksgiving centerpiece. With that in mind, I love to serve it with Cranberry Pecan Cauliflower Rice Stuffing, Keto Green Bean Casserole, Herbed Goat Cheese Cauliflower Mash, White Cheddar Sausage Keto Biscuits, and Low Carb Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse. Just like that, you have a complete menu of keto Thanksgiving recipes.
