My husband has made the best roasted chicken I have ever had for the last 20 years. I have enjoyed it so much and requested it many times. Since he was doing the cooking I always took advantage and not been in the kitchen while he was preparing my favorite dish.
Well, on Sunday I asked my husband if he would make it for me and let me get the recipe. 🙂
I am going to share it with you. You will love it!
The things you will need. Roasting pan. Whole chicken. Chicken broth. C & J Farms Scarborough Fair Seasoning (you can use Dry Ranch as an option), C & J Farms Sea Salt & Pepper, 2 Sticks of butter, 1 box Stove Top Stuffing – Savory Herb, 1 box Cornbread Stove Top Stuffing, meat thermometer.
Set your oven to 375 degrees.
Wash you chicken well inside and out. Take 1 1/2 tablespoon of Salt & Pepper and slather the inside of the chicken and some on the outside of the chicken. Then add 1 1/2 tablespoons of the Seasoning, Scarborough Fair or Dry Ranch and slather the inside of chicken again. Take about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the seasoning and rub on the outside of the chicken.
Add the content of boxes of dressing in a bowl and mix together. Add the box of chicken broth. Let it sit until the broth is absorbed by the dressing mix.
At this time you can prepare any veggies you may be adding to the roasting pan with the chicken.
Once the broth is absorbed, mix the dressing and stuff as much as you can inside the chicken. You can let some spill out into the pan. Then add 1 entire stick of butter to the inside of the chicken. Yep, just stuff it in there. The entire stick. 🙂
Then add a little water to the bottom of the roasting pan (about and inch in the bottom).
Now cover the chicken and put in the oven for a couple of hours. Begin to check internal temperature of chicken. Once the chicken reaches 190 degrees it is done. Take the other stick of butter and slather it on top of the outside of the chicken. You will probably use about 1/3 of it. Leaving it uncovered to crisp and brown the outside skin of the chicken return it to the oven for another 20 to 30 minutes.
Once browned and temp is right, it is ready to be enjoyed. This is an exceptionally moist and juicy chicken on the inside and crispy on the outside.
Now, my husband cooks this for two people. There are always leftovers which makes me very happy!! I will type up one of the recipes I make out of the leftovers later. The entire family will love it too. For now, try this and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Look at the top image really well. You can see how moist the chicken is. I wanted to get a picture of it coming out of the oven but my husband wasn’t aware of that and I missed that beautiful roasted bird.
