How to cook a whole roasted chicken in the oven to get that crispy skin but a moist, flavor-packed chicken for that family meal any day of the week.
Preheat Oven to 400℉
In a 9x13 baking dish add the carrots, celery, and onion. Set baking dish aside.
Clean the inside of the chicken out. Rinse with cold water. Pat the skin dry with a paper towel. Place the chicken on top of the carrots, celery, and onion breast side up.
Add butter onto the chicken and inside as well. Then season to your liking.
Tent the chicken with foil (see post) and place into the oven
After 1 hour and 30 minutes remove the foil from the chicken and continue roasting until internal temperature reaches 165℉ This could take up to 2 hours or longer depending on the size of your chicken.
Once the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165℉ remove from oven and let sit uncovered for 10 minutes.
Carve the chicken and enjoy.
