I love chicken. Like, LOVE. Gabe and Ella do too.
But everytime I make a baked chicken, it's O.K. Just O.K.
Yesterday, I literally googled "the best way to bake a chicken."
I didn't necessarily follow all of the steps, but I did do this.
*I didn't rinse my chicken. Something about cross-contamination and all sorts of other terrible stuff.
*I roasted a bunch of veggies along with it.
*I made seasoned butter (softened butter, dill, roasted garlic, salt, pepper)
* DO not rinse your chicken
*Rub the seasoned butter all over it
*Lay onions and other veggies in the pan
*Put the chicken in at 425 degrees for 20 minutes, then turn it down to 375 for another hour/hour and a half
*Wrap the chicken in foil and let it rest after it's baked, for 15 minutes breast side-up, then flip over and let it rest for another 15 minutes in its little foil tent
