Super Easy Baked Chicken

As promised on Tuesday, here is my Super Easy Baked Chicken recipe.
 
 


This thing is tried and true.  Super easy to whip up.  I use it constantly.   
 
 
It is literally as easy as measuring out a bunch of herbs and spices.
 
 
Throwing them on and in a chicken.
 
 
Tossing it in the oven.
Done & Done.
 
 
Since Costco sells their organic chickens in 2 packs, I usually throw them both in my big roaster and cook them up together.  Literally 2 birds, one…stone.
 
Once the meat has cooled, I get to work pulling the meat off the bone.  (Don’t procrastinate and throw them in the fridge overnight.  Pulling cold chicken is a terrible idea…not that I’ve EVER done that!)  
 
Now I have meat for several meals and a bag or two for the fridge.  It’s perfect for quick sandwiches or quesadillas.
 
I used to do this in the crock pot.  But Hubby likes the skin nice and crispy, and you just can’t get that from a crock pot.
 
Super Simple Baked Whole Chicken
 
1 3-4lb chicken
2 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
 
-Dry your chicken with a paper towel.  (not 100% sure what this does, but the people on Country Kitchen do it every time they cook chicken, so it must be important!)
-Combine salt, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, oregano, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl and mix well.  
-Take seasoning mixture and rub it thoroughly into the chicken.  Pull up the skin on the chicken and rub the seasoning directly onto the meat of the chicken.  This is not the time to be weird about raw chicken.  Really get it in there.  Toss some into the chicken cavity and rub in as well.  Make sure to use every last speck of the seasoning.  
-I have a big roasting pan that I use when I cook both chickens together.  Otherwise, just cook in a small pan.  
-Bake at 425 degrees for 1 hour or until both chickens are done.
**If you want to crock this, cut up a medium onion and put it in the crock pot.  Then put your chicken on top of the onion and cook for 6 hours on high.
 
 
 

Enjoy!

about a oven over 400 degrees for an hour.
