how to bake chicken

What is the best way to bake chicken? Whole or in part?

post #2 of 5

It depends on what you want to serve.  I roast whole chicken and/or parts all the time.  There is no one best way.  I prefer to use the term "roast" when referring to whole chicken or parts.  I use the term "bake" if the chicken is stuffed or wrapped in something.

Thank you very much!

IMO there's something very special about roasting a whole chicken that you lose the instant you start breaking down a chicken. I'm not saying I never break down a chicken - I often do - but usually not for roasting. 

 

There are no rules though, as KK said, other than experimenting and deciding what you prefer yourself.

You mean roast chicken  . Make sure bird is dry, season inside the cavity place on an upside down pie plate in a roasting pan so it does not sit in juices and grease and they run off. cook till internal temp just barely hits 162-65 take out lt rest before carving.  Enjoy
