Ridiculously Easy and Great Roasted Chicken

Meat - Roasted Chicken (2)I don’t usually roast my meats except for Pot Roast but I’m making Tortilla Soup and needed some chicken to put in it.  When Beth was at the store she picked up some bone-in breasts and some leg quarters.  At first I wasn’t sure how I was going to make them but then I thought I’d get over my own lack of knowledge of roasting chicken.  So I looked up some recipes which gave me different times and different temperatures with lots of different ingredients.  Well, I just wanted the chicken so here is what I did and you can do it too and it is really easy for how moist the chicken is and crispy the skin gets.

*Preheat oven to 425°


What you need:

Chicken parts

Salt and Pepper


What you do:

1. Trim the excess fat from the chicken pieces

2. Put salt and pepper under the skin then sprinkle the outside liberally with salt

3. Bake for exactly 1 hr for big pieces like I had.  45 min. for smaller pieces.


Voila!  You have moist easy chicken to serve on salads or with vegetables.
