Description Edit

Here's a very tasty way to make roast chicken. Leftovers taste wonderful as sandwiches or wrapped in tortillas. Its a family recipe I created one day when we had a lot of frying chickens in the freezer. Easy to make and tasty too.- Source: Mash317.

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Preheat oven to 375 °F.
  2. Spray a roasting pan with nonstick cooking pan.
  3. Spray roasting rack with nonstick cooking spray. Place rack inside roasting pan.
  4. Remove giblets, heart, gizzard from chicken cavity, if required.
  5. Rinse chicken and pat dry.
  6. Place chicken on roasting rack.
  7. Rub chicken with olive oil. Figure about 2 tablespoons, depending on personal taste and the size of the chicken.
  8. Season liberally with Montreal Chicken seasoning or other favorite seasoning mix. Spice Islands is another good choice.
  9. Roast chicken until the meat tests done. This should take about 2 hours.
  10. Roast chicken is safely cooked when the temperature registers 180 °F. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.

Notes Edit

  • To speed roasting, partially cook chicken in the microwave oven in a microwave-safe dish. Immediately roast chicken in conventional oven. This usually cuts the roasting time in half. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.
  • Use care when removing roast chicken from oven.
