I realized the other day that I've forgotten to do a Sunday recipe post two weeks in a row so I apologize for that!
This is a pretty basic recipe that I used to make at least once a week and one everyone would eat. I don't normally measure out the seasonings, I just kind if sprinkle them on so the amounts included here are basic guesses and the nutrition may be a little off thanks to that, but it's pretty close so it works for me!
1 3-pound whole chicken with the inside stuff taken out
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1/4 cup butter unsalted
Preheat oven to 350. Wash the chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Melt the butter and rub into the chicken skin. Combine all of the seasonings (I usually just sprinkle them on the chicken as I go) and rub them into the chicken skin, inside and out. I also flip the chicken over once the top is seasoned and then season the bottom in the same way so the entire chicken is covered.
Place the chicken into a 9x13x2 pan and bake uncovered for about 1 1/2 hours or the juices run clear and the internal temperature reaches 180 degrees. Remove from heat and enjoy! Sometimes I baste the chicken as it cooks but it depends on my mood.
