/ How to cook chicken in oven

Baking chicken in the oven is an easy and very rewarding task. Chicken dinner made by cooking a whole chicken has several advantages. The preparation time for the chicken is approximately 10 minutes with a cooking time average of approximately 1 1/4 hour. This gives you time to make side dishes or a salad. Chicken is high in protein and low in calorie and fat as well as being possibly the most versatile of the available meats.

You can bake a whole chicken and season it any way you like, although we prefer using Knox's Dry Rubs. Leave the skin on during cooking to retain the natural succulence of the chicken meat and to prevent dry or tough cooked chicken, even if you decide to throw it away after chicken has cooked.

How to cook chicken in oven: Basically

• 1 chicken, whole, 2.5 to 5 lbs.
• Olive oil, butter or vegetable oil
Knox's Yummy Chicken Dry Rub Seasoning

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

After cleaning the chicken under tap water, dry and rub with oil. Thoroughly rub inside and out with Knox's Yummy Chicken dry rub or your seasoning of choice.
 
Place a whole chicken in a roasting pan. You can use an oven proof pan you already have or purchase an aluminum pan at your local grocery.
 
Cook the chicken for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 180 for thighs (taking the reading in the thickest part). If you do not have a meat thermometer you can test for doneness by cutting into the deepest part of the thigh. If the meat is no longer pink and juices run clear, it's done. This should be done later in the process so the juices do not run out of your chicken while it still has a lot of time to cook.
 
You will want the chicken to rest for about 10 minutes before carving to let the juices and heat redistribute.

Enjoy!
