Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

These bone-in, roasted, low carb chicken breasts are so good!!

If you have a package of bone-in chicken breasts hiding in your freezer, pull them out and plan to make this recipe. This recipe was super simple to make and the results are amazing. You will need an ovenproof skillet to make this recipe. If you don’t have one you will need a skillet and a baking dish. I used cast iron but you don’t have to use that kind of a skillet.

You can often find these type of chicken breasts on sale for .99 lb.

Budget friendly, family friendly recipes are essential recipes to have on hand. I used carrots and some colorful potatoes under the chicken. Those aren’t exactly low carb. I just used what I had on hand at the moment. Any veggies that take a little bit of time to cook will work. Things that are quick cooking , like yellow squash, zucchini, eggplants, etc. wouldn’t be the best because they will be burnt before the chicken is cooked. Honestly, you don’t even have to have the veggies under the chicken. I needed easy and fast, so this worked perfect.

I pulled out a lot of seasonings for this recipe, you can definitely pair it down a bit.

I wanted to give the skin lots of great flavor. You could even put some of the seasonings under the skin, directly on the meat if you want. Like I said, I went a little crazy with the seasonings. Use what you have, what your family likes. I also used red palm oil and butter as my fats. Use whatever you have. This is definitely a recipe that will be on repeat at my house!
