    Trinkets's Note:

    This chicken has the crispiest skin, the most wonderful aroma, and the juciest meat. And, I love the simplicity of it. My friend from Lafayette, LA heard a chef talk on the radio about how to prepare his favorite roasted chicken and she called me with the directions. We don't know the name of the chef, sorry. But whoever he is, this really is fantastic!

      Yum! I think next time I will add some garlic or some other wonderful spice that compliments poultry. I baked 2 chickens at once and they were both delicious. Note: Your oven gets a bit smokey from the grease cooking out of the skin, but I have made this repeatedly, one of my favorites.

      This is my first review...I created a username just so I could tell you that this is such an amazing recipe. It was easy to follow, with limited ingredients, but everyone was very impressed and it tasted delicious. Thank you!

      SOOOOOOOO good. My kids annihilated it so fast. So easy to make. I cooked it breast side down and added a little sage in with salt and fresh cracked pepper.
