Chicken Recipes

Baking whole chickens makes such an easy, carefree meal. The flavor, however, tastes like you put a lot of work into the meal. You can put your whole meal in one roaster by adding vegetables to the chicken. The vegetables then absorb the flavor of the broth and any other ingredients. If you cut up your chicken, just put the desired chicken pieces in the roaster over the vegetables. Yum!!! Are you hungry yet? 🙂

Oriental Hot and Spicy Chicken

1-4 lb. chicken
4 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. hot sauce
1 Tbsp. mustard
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tsp. five spice powder

In a small saucepan, mix every ingredient except the chicken. Cook over medium heat until the butter is melted and the garlic is fragrant. Brush the chicken with the sauce. Bake a whole chicken in a covered roaster at 350 degrees till the chicken is tender. Plan on two hours or till the leg is loose in the joint.

Butter Chicken and Potatoes
1 whole chicken
4-6 potatoes
4 Tbsp. butter (no substitutes), melted
