How to Roast a Chicken
Updated: Dec 24, 2018
There aren't many things as delicious as a freshly roasted chicken. It takes some time to cook, but it sure it scrumptious! And it's easy. Let's be honest, I don't make anything too complicated.
Each month I order 2 chickens from Harvest Moon and I make them like this:
Step 1: Pre heat the oven to 350F
Step 2: Place chicken in a roasting pan (these are fairly inexpensive to buy and worth it).
Step 3: Smother the chicken in the oil of your choosing (I usually use olive oil which I know isn't the best at high heat, but, alas, I do it anyway). Some balsamic vinegar here is good, too!
Step 4: Sprinkle it with salt, pepper and paprika (paprika is a GAME CHANGER)
Step 5: Bake for 2 hours and 30 minutes to 3 hours and 30 minutes. This is dependent on the size. I trust you can check it and make the right judgement.
