Oven-Roasted Chicken

oven roast chickenI love chicken, so Pete decided that was a good reason to try to make a full bird. He never made one before this, but oh my gosh, it was so good he’ll be making a full chicken for a long time after this.

Plus, it’s so cheap. The entire meal was under $5.

Put the chicken on the skillet and cook. You want to cook the chicken for 26 minutes per pound.

We cooked it for 40 minutes with the oven on, and then cut the heat and let it cook on residual heat.

Let the chicken rest for 20 minutes before you cut into it. You’re gonna have to wait, but it’s so hard because, well, look at it.

Waiting is worth it, though. The finished chicken is perfect. The white meat wasn’t dry and it all fell off the bone. Literally. That’s why there’s no wings in the picture. They fell off — and right into our mouths.

I didn’t think the oven-roasted chicken was going to have that much flavor because it was only a few ingredients, but it was so good, so flavorful, so perfect … even reheated three days later.
