Firstly, make sure that the chicken is clean inside. Some chicken will come pre-cleaned but make sure to check. If needed wear some plastic gloves and clean the chicken with running water. It will take just two minutes.
Start by preheating your oven to 200°C / 390°F.
Place the whole chicken into a baking dish. Mix together the olive oil, salt and rosemary then massage the mixture over the entire chicken. Cut the garlic bulb in half and place it into the baking dish next to the chicken.
In a small bowl mix together the chicken broth cube with some water and then pour it into the baking dish.
Now the chicken is ready to bake. To keep it moist inside cover the baking dish with foil and then place it into the oven for 45 minutes. We'll remove the foil afterward to allow the skin to become nice and crispy.
After 45 minutes, remove the foil from the baking dish. A sauce will have formed in the bottom of the baking dish and we'll be using this to pour over the chicken every 10 minutes until it's ready. Simply use a spoon or ladle to pour the sauce over the chicken every 10 minutes.
Depending on the size of the chicken you will need to continue baking for around another 45 minutes. A 2.2-pound chicken should take around 1 ½ hours. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature is 165°F / 75°C to make sure the chicken is properly cooked.
Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with lime wedges and your favorite Greek yogurt. This baked chicken recipe goes great with so many low carb keto side dishes.
