Keto BBQ Chicken - (Bone-In or Boneless)

This Keto BBQ Chicken is a staple recipe that never gets old. It pairs well with most lunch and dinner sides, making it a versatile recipe to keep in your arsenal. Since it is something that both kids and adults can agree on, it is no surprise that it has become a year-round staple in my weeknight dinner repertoire. I like to use my homemade Keto Barbecue Sauce, but for those times when you need a dish you can throw together in a flash, I'm sharing my favorite clean option below. This recipe is super-versatile. You can cook it on the grill, in your air fryer, Instant Pot, or in the oven.

– 1 tablespoon sea salt – 1 tablespoon brown sugar substitute – 1 teaspoon garlic powder – 1 teaspoon smoked paprika – 1 teaspoon black pepper – ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper – 3 pounds chicken cut into pieces (bone in or bone out) – 1 cup Keto Barbecue Sauce divided


In a small bowl combine salt, brown sugar substitute, garlic powder, smoked paprika, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Rub all over the chicken pieces. (I like to do this a day ahead of time.)


Divide the BBQ sauce into two. You will use half for brushing and half for serving.


Preheat the oven to 420 degrees. 


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a rack on it.


For Bone-In Cook, the chicken for 15 minutes. Brush the chicken with sauce, and roast for 40 minutes longer, continuing to baste every 10 minutes or so until a thermometer reaches 165 degrees. Serve with remaining barbecue sauce.


For Boneless Cook 22 minutes, or until the instant-read thermometer reaches 165 degrees. Baste every 5 minutes or so.
