Cook time

  1. Preheat the oven to 375℉
  2. Rinse the chicken and pat it dry with paper towels — inside and out! The drier the better.
  3. Lightly oil the entire chicken.
  4. Season all over with salt and pepper.
  5. Place chicken on a sheet pan and place in the upper third of the preheated oven.
  6. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until the internal temperature of the thickest part of the chicken reaches 165℉ and juices run clear.
  7. Remove the bird from the sheet pan, cover with foil, and let rest for 5 minutes.
  8. Carve your bird, or leave it whole for a beautiful centerpiece.
  9. Enjoy!
