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
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)
