Officially a Real Woman: I Roasted an Entire Chicken

I’ve always been intimidated by cooking the whole bird, I’m not sure why but “pieces” just seem more friendly. Thanks to a friend sharing her secret; I am no longer afraid!

See the picture for proof! I feel like a real woman. And get this it only took an hour AND was tender, juicy falling off the bone. DH acted as if I was a miracle worker!

Here’s the low down:

  • Buy the chicken; I chose a 4lb organic chicken from publix.
  • Preheat oven to 450 and place oven safe skillet in oven while preheating
  • Rinse and pat dry chicken with paper towel
  • Grease up the Chicken ( I used olive oil)
  • Season and rub in ( with whatever you’d like , I’ve used lemon herb)
  • Put in pan breast side up ( skillet will be hot, chicken will sizzle)
  • Cook for 25-35 mins
  • Cut off oven, leave chicken inside for another 30min

AND YOU ARE DONE!! It’s amazing, and tastes even better! Here’s a link to the recipe, you may need to register.
