I know, chicken again? Chicken remains the lowest priced meat in the meat case. I can still find it for a buck a pound for the good stuff. You need to buy a chicken that is over three pounds in order to get your best value. It has to do with the ratio of chicken to bone.
Please remember to prep a chicken on a cutting board away from raw fruits and veggies.
Rinse chicken with cold water. Scrape out the cavity with a spoon. Rinse with cold water. Sprinkle cavity with salt.
Stuff cavity with anything you have around--a lemon, an orange, an onion, an apple .
Rub skin with olive oil.
Grease rack of roasting pan.
Rub dry rub or paste over chicken. Place chicken on roasting pan.
If you don't have a roasting pan, you can put root vegetables on the bottom of a bakimg pan and make it work.
Grind or pulverize seasonings with a bottle bottom in a shallow bowl.
1/2 tsp each of
1/2 tsp each
1/4 cup plain yogurt, 1 T flour, 1/2tsp salt. Add seasonings.

TO ROAST BIRD
PLACE BIRD IN LOWEST RACK OF THE OVEN. ROAST AT 375 degrees for about 20 minutes a pound. I insert an oven safe meat thermometer and set it to well done chicken.
Chicken should be 170 degrees. The leg should pull away from the breast and yje juices should run clear.
