Final Notes for the Oven-Baked Whole Chicken Recipe

➡️ Chicken is one of the most consumed foods in the world. Among the most popular chicken recipes are baked chicken recipes. Most of them involve cooking chicken at low temperatures and for a long time. I also use such recipes, but on this page, I share a baked chicken recipe that involves cooking chicken at a very high temperature. The results are simply spectacular but in a much shorter time!

➡️ This is a lesser-known method of cooking a baked whole chicken in the oven and if you are wondering if the chicken will be tender, the answer is yes. Not only is the meat soft on the inside, but the skin is crispy and the taste is similar to that of broiled chicken or grilled chicken.

➡️ I use various spices to cook a baked whole chicken and one of my favorite combinations is the one that includes rosemary and garlic. Both go well with chicken and contribute to a delicious taste that makes it harder to stop eating this dish!

➡️ As for the taste of rosemary, some like it more, others less. That’s why I use both its dry and fresh versions in the recipe. Those who want a more intense rosemary taste can introduce a sprig of rosemary in the chicken so that its taste is better absorbed in the meat.

➡️ As you can see in the video, this baked chicken recipe is very easy. The cooking time is short and after you place the chicken in the oven you can do whatever you want. Basically, you need about 10-15 minutes of seasoning the chicken and after that, you go back to the kitchen just to enjoy the taste of the perfect baked chicken!

➡️ Because it’s so easy to cook, I don’t have many secrets to share about this baked chicken recipe. However, I will point out one very important thing to get the best results when cooking this whole chicken recipe. It’s about the size of the chicken.

➡️ The bigger the chicken, the longer time is needed to cook it. Therefore, the ideal weight of the chicken when using this recipe is about 1.5 kg/50 oz.

➡️ Finally, I’ll tell you another secret that makes the baked chicken even tastier. After the skin is golden and you turn off the oven, I recommend leaving the tray inside for another 15-30 minutes so that the juices that form during baking are absorbed into the meat and make it even more tender and tasty.

➡️ Enjoy cooking baked whole chicken from scratch! For additional info, read more on chicken as food!
