Keto BBQ Chicken

This Keto BBQ Chicken is something the whole family loves and is so easy to make that even my teenage boys can handle it. If you are short on time and don't want to make sauce, this is the brand I recommend.

Equipment

Ingredients

Instructions

  • 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.)

GRILLING INSTRUCTIONS

    For Bone-In

    • Cook chicken, occasionally turning, over indirect heat for about 20 minutes, until the thermometer reads 165 degrees. (You can also use a grill pan.)
    • Brush with the barbecue sauce during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Serve with the remaining barbecue sauce.

    For Boneless

    • Grill, occasionally turning, for 10 minutes or until the thermometer reads 165 degrees. Turn at the halfway point.
    • Brush with the barbecue sauce during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Serve with the remaining barbecue sauce.

    BAKING INSTRUCTIONS

    • Preheat the oven to 420 degrees.
    • Like 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.

    Notes

    Please note:  Nutritional information does not include the BBQ sauce so that you can account for the brand that you use.  Sugar alcohols in the sugar substitute have been subtracted.  Actual cook time will depend on the method of cooking and whether you are using bone in chicken or boneless as well as light or dark meat.
