3 Ingredient Buttermilk Ranch Roasted Chicken (Keto, Low Carb)

Shamelessly I admit…I stood over the chicken pan feeling a bit like a barbarian…I was scraping the pan drippings off and eating them. I was greasy, I was hiding a little, I was in heaven! Ranch dressing has got to be the cure-all for food: celery is not nasty as long as it’s covered in ranch, a Chick-fil-a sandwich is divine, but BETTER drenched in creamy buttermilk ranch dressing!

This roasted chicken recipe is one of the simplest stick-it-in-the-oven-and-forget-it recipes you will find. It DOES take 1hr 45mins to cook, but you literally don’t have to do anything to it during that time. No pre-browning, no flipping, grilling, tending to, so why not set your oven to start at 2 hours before you want to eat dinner and enjoy fall off the bone quality chicken with flavor through the roof?
When we go too many days without having roasted chicken, my husband is the first to mention it, “we haven’t had your roasted chicken in a while…” This recipe was a huge hit. Mix 3 ingredients and slather the bird and you have a delectable masterpiece that tastes like a LOT of work, but really only took you 5 minutes to get in the oven!

You can totally just rub the mixture over the skin with the same bake time, but this is how I did it this time, I cut up one side of the spine and butterflied it (Set the open side of the body on the pan, breast side up)
Mix 1/4 cup Original Ranch with 1 tbsp lemon juice. Slather all over and spoon some under the skin of the breasts, pushing it down under-skin to get some on the entire breast. Then sprinkle with seasoning salt evenly all over.

Roast for 1.5-1hr 45 mins at 350 degrees.


These brown spots are one of life’s simple pleasures. They make this chicken out of this world!

  1. Super easy! When we do whole roasted chickens we butterfly them up just because it cooks so much faster that way.
