Keto Buffalo Garlic Parm Whole Chicken

Buffalo Garlic Parmesan Whole Chicken is one of my favorites. I did this same kind of recipe with chicken wings as well and I loved that recipe so much, therefore I had to see if it would be good on a whole chicken. It is so good both ways, after all, how can you go wrong with garlic, hot sauce, and parmesan cheese? It is such a wonderful combination I discovered how much I loved when I created these recipes.

Servings 1 whole chicken


  • 1 whole chicken 5-6 lbs, giblets removed
  • 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter
  • 4 Tbsp hot sauce
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • Large oven bag
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour for oven bag
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  • In a bowl, add room temperature butter.
  • To the room temperature butter add hot sauce, garlic powder, minced garlic, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Mix until well incorporated.
  • In an oven bag, add coconut flour and shake to coat the inside of the bag. This will prevent the bag from bursting during cooking.
  • Place the rinsed whole chicken (patted dry with giblets removed) into the oven bag in a roasting pan.
  • Starting at the neck end, slide your fingers under the skin of the breast to loosen the skin from the breast to form a pocket. Be careful not to rip the skin.
  • With either your hand or a spoon, put half of the softened butter mixture between the skin and the breast meat. Rub the other half of the butter mixture over the outside of the chicken.
  • Close the bag securely with the ties that came with the oven bag. Cut six ½ inch slits in the top of the bag, this will allow steam to escape from the bag so the bag won’t burst during cooking.
  • Tuck in any loose ends of the bag into the roasting pan.
  • Bake for about 1 ½ hours (or until a meat thermometer placed in the thigh reads 170 °F or until the juices run clear when pierced).
  • If it did not brown in the bag you can cut open the top of the bag and return to the oven for a few minutes to brown the top of the chicken.
  • Let the chicken rest 10 minutes before serving.
