Bake chicken, skin side up, basting occasionally with pan juices, until well browned and cooked through, 50 minutes. Serve chicken drizzled with pan juices.


Recently we’ve started buying whole chickens and breaking them down using all the pieces.  This is a much more economical way to make this recipe.  It also leaves leftovers!
