Ingredients to Make Classic Roast Chicken

  • Whole chicken – (giblets removed)
  • Butter, melted
  • Lemon, quartered
  • Paprika
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder 

How to Make Delicious Chicken

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Pat the chicken with a paper towel, which will help get rid of any extra moisture and get it golden brown and crispy.

Brush the chicken on all sides with melted butter. Sprinkle on paprika, garlic powder, pepper, and salt. Stuff the chicken with lemon.

Place on a baking sheet, breast side up. Bake the chicken in the oven for 1 hour and 25 minutes. 

Let rest for 15-20 min. Carve the chicken and serve with roast potatoes and fresh vegetables or try my Brussels Sprouts with Garlic recipe. Enjoy!

My Cooking Tips

Always leave your roast chicken to rest for at least 20 mins before carving. This will give you a juicy and tender chicken.

For a more succulent chicken, take it out of the fridge one-two hour before cooking to bring it up to room temperature.
