Monday Menu – Roasted Chicken

We had the most delicious roast chicken last night. In April I bought 10# of “free range” whole chickens for $28 through Azure Standard and they are so tender and tasty! Here is how we fixed the ones from last night.

Delicious Roast Chicken
  • 1 whole chicken
  • olive oil
  • garlic
  • paprika
  • bay seasoning
  • salt
  • pepper


Preheat the oven to 400º. Take the giblets out of the chest cavity. Rub the outside of the chicken completely with organic olive oil (we purchased ours from Columbus Foods) Sprinkle liberally with spices. Bake at 400º for 20 minutes (this sears it and keeps the juices inside) and then lower the temperature to 300º for  1 to 1 1/2 hours

We served it with brown rice and frozen vegies.  Mmmh!  It was so tender it nearly fell apart when I was cutting off the pieces.  The flavor was amazing!  My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
