Easy Fall off the Bone Baked Chicken Recipe


When I am not in the mood to try a new recipe or don’t have the time to do a lot of prep I resort to a whole baked chicken.  I love the different options that are available once the chicken is baked.  I can use it for soups, salads, or serve it with roasted vegetables among many other options.  Below is my simple fall off the bone baked chicken recipe. I sometimes bake a few chickens at a time and freeze some for a later date.   Don’t forget to save the bones to make bone broth.

Fall off the Bone Baked Chicken

Total Time: 2 hours


1 whole chicken

2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Fresh or dried herb of choice.  I like to use the no salt herb seasoning from Costco if I don’t have any fresh herbs on hand.



Preheat oven to 325

Remove giblets and neck from the cavity

Wash and pat chicken dry with paper towel

Rub the oil all over the skin of the chicken

Season chicken inside and out with salt, pepper and herbs

Bake at 325 for 1 1/2 hours in a covered dish

Increase temperature to 375 and cook uncovered for 30 minutes (This helps the skin to get crispy)

  1. I should have read this receipe before I made my chicken tonight. A baked whole chicken is my go to as well. I then use it for soup, tacos, salad and whatever else I can think of putting chicken in.

        1. Oh you are getting a little ambitious over there…lol! I must admit, I dont have the faith for that one as yet. I am still trying to focus on getting this ebook together.
