This is the way my Grandmother Taylor always made her Roast Chicken. I sometimes like to add some minced garlic, and rub the salt and pepper on the bird after rubbing it with olive oil first. I also like to put a bay leaf into the chicken as well. But even just as she did it, it is great (sans olive oil, bay leaf, garlic and vegetable garnish). Our whole family so enjoys it. Great with a some dressing for the garnish and side of potatoes! Pretty simple, but delicious!

How to Make Roast Chicken-Mmmnnn!

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350F.
  • 2Rub the washed and dried chicken with olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper.
    Insert the bay leaf, celery, onions and carrot into the bird.
  • 3Cover with foil, shiny side in, and bake at 350F for 40 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
  • 4Remove bay leaf, and serve on platter with desired garnish. I use a bed of fresh spinach around the chicken with broccoli,carrots (or carrot curls)and either grape or cherry tomatoes.

    The estimated cook time includes about 10 minutes to prepare the chicken, and 10 minutes to do the vegetable garnish, so if you aren't doing a garnish it is even quicker.

Chicken is my go-to when I just can't figure out what to make for dinner. Whenever I find myself wondering what to make, I grab a package at the market...
