Low Carb Garlic Chicken

1 oz. butter or olive oil, for greasing

2 lbs chicken drumsticks

salt and pepper

1 lemon, the juice

2 tbsp olive oil

7 garlic cloves, sliced

Β½ cup (ΒΌ oz.) fresh parsley, finely chopped


1️⃣  Preheat the oven to 450Β°F (225Β°C).

2️⃣  Grease the baking pan generously with the butter or oil and place the chicken drumsticks in the pan. Salt and pepper to taste.

3️⃣  Drizzle the lemon juice and olive oil over the chicken pieces. Sprinkle the garlic and parsley on top.

4️⃣  Bake the chicken until golden and the garlic slices have turned brown and roasted for about 30–40 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches at least 165Β°F (74Β°C). The baking time may be longer if your drumsticks are on the larger size. You can lower the temperature a little towards the end of the baking time if your drumsticks are becoming too dark. Makes 4 servings.


Explore your side dish options! Serve with aioli and a hearty salad. Or how about a delectable cauliflower mash? And don’t let any of this chicken go to waste! It’s just as delicious – and versatile – the next day. Serve it cold or warm, or as the centerpiece of a gorgeous salad!
