To roast your chicken in the oven, you’ll need to dedicate some serious time and care to it. With the proper attention, you can serve the juiciest, tastiest roast to your family.
First, put your chicken breast down on a grill tray and place it inside your preheated oven at 400°F. Place a large baking tray at the bottom of the oven – this will catch any drips, which you can use for stock or gravy afterwards. A whole chicken needs about 60 to 80 minutes in the oven, depending on the size, and should be turned over halfway through. Looking for a top tip? Brush your meat with your homemade marinade or stock while it’s cooking to keep it from drying out.
When the time’s up, stick a skewer into the thigh where the meat is thickest. If the juices run clear, your roast chicken is ready!
