Ingredients You Will Need to Make this Recipe

How to Make Keto Barbecue Chicken in the Oven

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Cut chicken breast to similar sizes to ensure even cooking.

Place chicken breast in a casserole dish and pour bbq sauce on top. Sprinkle seasoning on top of the barbecue sauce. 

Cook for about 15 minutes and then flip around, add more bbq sauce and cook for another 15 minutes. 

Halfway through when flipping chicken if there is moisture building up in the pan, drain it before adding more bbq sauce. 

Cook for an additional 15 minutes and then check the temperature of the chicken using a meat thermometer to be sure that your chicken is fully cooked. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What temperature should the chicken be when done? 

Chicken is fully cooked at 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a meat thermometer to be sure that your chicken is fully cooked. 

Can I use Bone-In Chicken Instead of Boneless? 

Bone-In chicken would be a juicy and delicious alternative to boneless. However, you will need to cook it longer. Be sure to check the internal temperature before serving. 

What Side Dishes Pair Well with this Keto Barbecue Chicken? 

There are many easy and delicious options for side dishes that will pair perfectly with this meal. Some of my favorite side dishes to pair with this barbecue chicken are broccoli with cheese sauce, baked cauliflower, or a hearty side salad.

After cooking for 15 minutes, drain excess liquid from the casserole dish before flipping the chicken breast and adding more sauce.
