Keto-Friendly Dutch Oven Recipes 2021


If you are eating a low-carb diet, these tasty one-pot meals are for you. These Dutch oven recipes are easy, delicious, and keto-friendly. Because you’re essentially putting a covered pot in your oven, there’s very little effort required for these recipes. Best of all, your meat will be tender and your vegetables soft and juicy.

You can make these recipes with any lidded pot that can go in the oven, but get yourself a single or double Dutch Oven for the best results. You’ll be glad you did!

Dutch Oven Roasted Chicken

This recipe serves 4.


  • 1 whole chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic (leave the peel on)
  • 4 carrots
  • 2 onions (leave the peel on)
  • 2 celery sticks
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 more garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • Black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Chop the vegetables. Put as many veggies as you can inside the cavity of the chicken, and the rest in the bottom of your Dutch oven.

Place the chicken over the veggies and brush it with olive oil. If you have any oil leftover, drizzle it over the vegetables.

Now sprinkle the chicken with minced garlic, sea salt, and ground black pepper. Put the sprig of rosemary on the top, and cover the pot.

Bake in the oven for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, depending on the size of your chicken. As a guide, a 2-pound chicken should bake for 2 hours and a 3-pound chicken for 2 1/2 hours.

Remove the lid and bake for 20 minutes more so that the top of the chicken is nicely browned.

Your chicken will be tender and ready to serve. The veggies will make a delicious broth.

Variations: You could use any mixture of low-carb vegetables that you wish for this recipe. Other veggies that work well are broccoli, mushrooms, zucchini, spinach, and cauliflower.

Keto-friendly Chili

This recipe serves 4.


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 sweet pepper, diced (any color)
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (or ordinary paprika if you can’t find smoked)
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • One 14-ounce can of diced tomatoes (add the juice too)
  • 1 cup beef broth

Optional toppings for serving

  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Slices of avocado
  • Fresh cilantro


In your Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion and garlic for 2 minutes, then add the bell pepper and cook for a few minutes more (the pepper should start to soften).

Add in the spices and stir well for a few seconds. Add in the ground beef and brown it for about 5 minutes.

Pour in the tomatoes with their juice and the beef broth. 

Cover the Dutch oven and reduce the heat to let the chili simmer for 1 hour.

Remove from the heat, dish up and serve with the toppings on the side.

Variations: You could also add chunks of chuck roast to this recipe for added texture. Simply brown some diced pieces of chuck steak in your Dutch oven before adding the onion and garlic.

Low-carb Berry Cobbler

This gorgeous dessert serves 8.

Ingredients for the filling

  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons xylitol, erythritol, or Yacon syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt

Ingredients for the crust

  • 1 stick salted butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (use sugar-free)
  • 2 tablespoons xylitol, erythritol, or Yacon syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

In your Dutch oven, toss the berries with the rest of the filling ingredients.

In a separate bowl, combine the salted butter with the egg, vanilla extract, and sweetener. Add in the flour and mix well to create a dough. Put the dough over the top of the berries.

Put your cobbler into the oven (without the lid) and bake for 20-25 minutes. The top of the dough should be golden brown, and the berry juice bubbling around the edges.

Serve with cream, if desired.

Variations: Peaches are also relatively low in carbs and would work well in this recipe. You could also make a strawberry sauce to pour over the top. Thaw some frozen strawberries and blend with a sweetener of your choice. To thicken the sauce for syrup, heat gently to let the liquid reduce. Delicious!
