How to Make Brown Paper Bag Roasted Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the olive oil and seasoning, except for the rosemary, and set aside for at least 30 minutes to mingle flavors.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  3. Rinse chicken and remove any extra fat deposits; dry well.
  4. Rub chicken with olive oil mixture; put cut up vegetables and the rosemary into the chicken cavity; Put chicken, breast side down, in heavy brown paper bag; close the bag and put it into a roasting pan. (you can use a metal binder, or an oven proof plastic bag tie, or just very tightly twist the ends of the bag, and fold under the chicken.
  5. Bake for 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours. (My 6# chicken should take the whole 3-1/2 hours)
