Whole 30 Perfect Chicken Recipe

Recommended Posts

There's a recipe for perfect chicken in the Whole 30 cookbook. It says to pre-heat the oven to 425 and to roast the chicken uncovered for 1 hour and 30 minutes.  Making the chicken this way extremely overcooks the chicken. Even only roasting it for 1 hour and 10 minutes extremely overcooks the chicken. Anyone else have this issue?

This is generally how I roast a whole chicken and it always turns out moist and delicious... is it possible your oven is actually hotter than the dial says?  It doesn't really matter tho, use a meat thermometer and whenever it goes off, your chicken is done... ovens vary, altitude plays a part etc... so cooking times are often a guide...

The size of the chicken would make a difference. My favorite roasted chicken recipe calls for 1 hour and 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven for a 3# chicken. After roasting, it needs to rest for 15 minutes to redistribute the juices before carving. And the house will smell wonderful!
