Nancy J.'s notes for this recipe:
THIS DELICIOUS, MOIST ROAST CHICKEN IS A VERY EASY RECIPE TO BAKE.
ONCE YOU BAKE IT, YOU WILL NEVER GO BACK TO A STORE BAKED ROTISSERI CHICKEN AGAIN !!!
10 MINUTES TO PRE-PARE.
OVERNIGHT IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR.
5 HOURS IN A 250 DEGREE OVEN, AND YOU WILL TASTE THE BEST CHICJEN....EVER!
NOTHING COULD BE EASIER, OR TASTE BETTER.

********************** WARNING...**********************************************
PLEASE do not use the white kitchen bags in this recipe!!
They are scented...and I was told to not use them in this recipe!!.Try using a clear plastic cooking bag...that will cover the chicken .
OR maybe , put the chicken in a mixing bowl and cover and seal the top with foil.
That should work well.

This sounds so good! I love things that are slow baked in the oven, they are always so flavorful and tender! I can hardly wait for cooler weather to try this! Thanks for the recipe!
