      This was a super simple roasted chicken recipe. I like that you flip the chicken half way through in order to get both sides of the bird crisp. Our bird was 3 1/2 lbs and took 90 minutes to cook through. Also, I thought this was a little blander than other recipes that I have used in the past. I even subbed in seasoning salt for the plain table salt. The method is good, so I will be making it again but subbing in my own spice mixture. Thank you babyiguana. Made for PAC Spring 2014.

      Terrific cooking method for a juicy and beautiful roast chicken. I made the gravy in the same pan and it turned out perfect. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
