Roasted Chicken

Mr. Chicken may not have been pretty, but he sure tasted good! When my family got through with him, he was nothing but a plate of bones!

Here's a super simple roasted chicken recipe sure to please your pickiest eater. My husband's not a chicken fan, but he ate several helpings. Enjoy :)

2 chickens(about 5 pounds each)
1 teaspoon each salt, seasoned salt, celery salt and onion salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Pat chickens dry. Place with breast side up in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Combine seasonings; rub over and inside chickens.
Cover and bake at 400° for 1 hour. Uncover and bake 30 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 180°. Serve one chicken immediately.
Cool the second chicken; debone and cube the meat and refrigerate or freeze (may be frozen for up to 3 months).

and remember to boil down the leftover chicken bones with a splash of vinegar to make yummy homemade chicken broth :)

I'll bet your house smelled so good while your chicken was in the oven! I love to make roasted chicken, especially when whole chickens are on sale.
