6 Ingredients Roast Chicken

I have roasted chicken a handful of times. It is always a success but cost wise, it is almost always cheaper to buy pre-roasted chicken from Costco.

When I saw a whole chicken go on sale for $1.99/lb, I purchased a two pack for $15. I recalled a particularly great roast chicken recipe that I made a few times before which tastes just like a store bought rotisserie chicken. I served the roast chicken along with roasted potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts, roasted cauliflower, roasted carrots and quick dinner rolls. Yes, it was quite the delicious feast.

1 (3 pound) whole chicken, giblets removed
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp ground pepper
1 tbsp onion powder
1/2 cup butter, divided
1 stalk celery, cut into 3 pieces

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Place the chicken in a roasting pan.

3. Mix the salt, ground pepper and onion powder in a small bowl.

4. Rub the chicken with the seasoning all over, inside and out.

5. Place 3 tbsp butter and celery pieces in the cavity of the chicken. Arrange the remaining butter around the chicken in the pan.

6. Bake uncovered for 1 hour and 15 minutes until the internal temperature of chicken registers 180 degrees F.

7. Remove from the oven and baste with melted butter and drippings.

8. Cover with aluminium foil and allow to rest for 30 minutes before serving.

This is sooooo good!
