Oven Roasted Chicken

Oven roasted chicken is an easy entrée to make for dinner!

We bring garlic, lemon and butter together for the baste. The final step before the chicken is complete, we broil it for a delicious crust.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 4-6 pound whole chicken, (remove giblets and neck from cavity!)

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

  • 3 tablespoons avocado or olive oil

  • 1/4 cup white wine

  • 1 lemon, halved

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

Recipe Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Line a baking tray with foil, or lightly grease a roasting pan.

  3. Discard neck from inside the cavity and remove any excess fat. Pat dry with a paper towel.

  4. Pour the avocado or olive oil, melted butter, wine (if using) and the juice of half the lemon under the skin, inside the cavity and on top of the chicken.

  5. Season chicken liberally on the outside and inside the cavity with salt and pepper. Sprinkle over the parsley.

  6. Rub the minced garlic over the chicken and under the skin. Tie the legs together with kitchen string.

  7. Place breast-side down into a baking tray or roasting pan.

  8. Roast for 1 hour.

  9. Turn the chicken breast side up and return to oven.

  10. Bake and baste often, until juices run clear when chicken thigh is pierced with a skewer.

  11. Baste again and then broil for 2-3 minutes or until golden.

  12. Remove from the oven, cover with foil and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

  13. Place chicken on serving dish and drizzle with pan juices.

  14. Cut the remaining lemon half into wedges or slices and use as garnish.
