A very hands-off, but extremely tasty recipe – this combines the crispiness of the chicken skin with the tender, almost falling apart, meat. Though it does take nearly an hour in the oven, it will only take you about 5 minutes of prep work to have everything ready. So, once you get home from work, rub some chicken down, let it cook, and enjoy a fantastic meal – hands off, of course 🙂

I also want to say thanks to everyone that visits the website! I know many of you come and see just 1 recipe and then leave, but I encourage you to start browsing the website and leaving feedback on other things you want to see. There are tons of keto recipes, information on keto, and even meal plans. I want to make this the best resource for keto, so if you ever have any suggestions – let me know!

The chicken meat stays extremely moist, the skin gets nice and crisp, and the spices bring a flavor explosion! This is a very similar spice rub to that which I used to make my curries out of. So if you’re a fan of the curry flavor, you will absolutely adore this recipe. My whole family loved it – but unfortunately, that meant no leftovers for me.

It’s totally up to you, but I recommend using the excess fat that comes off the chicken while cooking. It’s very flavorful and…well it’s fat. We all need fats on a ketogenic diet – so spoon it over the chicken or spoon it on top of the side vegetables. Whatever you do, don’t throw it away!
