Chicken Recipe: BAKED AND ROASTED Juicy Roasted Chicken

This roast Chicken Recipe is one that my grandmother used to make. This method makes the juiciest chicken! We liked to nibble on the celery after it was cooked.

  • Prep Time:15 mins
  • Cook Time:1 hrs 15 mins
  • Additional Time:30 mins
  • Total Time:2 hrs
  • Servings:6

Ingredients :

  • 1 (3 pound) whole chicken, giblets removed
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Onion powder, or to taste
  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • 1 stalk celery, leaves removed

Directions :

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Place chicken in a roasting pan; generously season inside and out with Onion powder, salt and pepper. Place 3 tablespoons of butter in cavity of chicken; place spoonfuls of remaining butter on outside of chicken. Cut celery into 3 or 4 pieces and place in cavity of chicken.
  • Bake chicken uncovered in preheated oven until no longer pink on the bone and juices run clear, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  • Remove from oven and baste with pan juices. Cover with foil and let stand for about 30 minutes before serving.
