Onions, lemons, garlic, and chimi add flavor to a simple roast chicken.

Whole Chimichurri Roasted Chicken

Whole roasted chicken is an impressive dinner that can feed the whole family, or turn into a meal-preppers dream thanks to its versatility. You can serve this alongside your favorite veggies and potatoes, or use the meat to make chicken salad, tacos, or shredded chicken for tacos and soups. Don’t forget to save the bones and make a big pot of chicken stock the next day.

Chef Tip: Resting the chicken before carving it is an important step, so don’t carve it as soon as it comes out! You’ll lose all those precious juices.

All of our recipes tagged as keto were verified by a nutritionist. A ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb way of eating, and the definition of keto (per the Paleo foundation) is a recipe that has less than 10g of net carbohydrates per serving.


Tempering can refer to a few techniques, all related to temperature control. The one you’ll most commonly find in our recipes is the process of bringing something to (or close to) room temperature, which we recommend for most proteins like whole chickens and steaks, so they cook evenly instead of going into a pan straight from the fridge.

Tempering can also refer to a technique in which a bit of hot liquid is added to a cold liquid to warm it slightly before adding it to a hot mixture, this is especially useful when adding beaten eggs or cream to a dish so that they work as a thickening agent rather than curdling when shocked by the heat. It’s also a chocolate making term, but we won’t go into all that here. :)
