Whole30 Garlic Chicken - Paleo, Keto, gluten-free, dairy-free can be cooked in airfryer or oven. Easy and kid-friendly!

Another easy chicken recipe coming at you! Seven ingredients (not counting salt) and can be made in the oven or the airfryer. A nice moist chicken with enough flavor to be interesting but mild enough for my kids to love it too. Great by itself, chopped up in salads, or on top of zoodles with a marinara sauce like a chicken parmesean. Whole30 compliant and keto-friendly, this one is a winner!
