So, I am on a little different diet this week. The first thing I do? Roast a couple of chickens so I have meat already prepared for the family. I just do a few different things to it each night, making it much easier for me.
I flip the chicken after cooking it for awhile, it makes the breast a lot more tender and moister than usual without much effort.
Turned Roasted Chicken
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place chicken, breast side down, in roasting pan. Season with olive oil, salt and pepper, or whatever you like on your chicken.
Cook for 40 minutes. Flip chicken so it's breast side up. Cook another 25 minutes. Check chicken. It's done when juices run clear and thermometer reads 180 degrees in the thigh.
(And don't forget, you can use the bones to make broth or stock for other recipes!)
