I recently purchased your chickens as part of the butchers box. They are SO juicy, but I thought I’d share a trick I just learned. Place the chicken on it’s side. 20 minutes in a 425 oven, then turn to the other side for another 20 minutes, then onto it’s back for 10 – 20 minutes. Golden, juicy and yummy. Next roast chicken I make will use your recipe, but cooking on it’s side. Thanks for sharing.

Chicken recipe sounds delish!!! Love your idea of roasting breast side DOWN first, then flipping over. Also, a very quick broil at the end is a SUPER idea. Thanks.

Thank you Christine! Who has time for basting – not us! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
