"This is one of my favorite recipes and was given to me by a neighbor many years ago. I've been making it ever since when the weather is cool and it is cozy to have the oven on. It is a no fail, super-easy recipe and I guarantee it will please your family and friends. The recipe can also be made with a cut up chicken."

onion, halved and sliced
low sodium soy sauce
extra-virgin olive oil
honey, or more to taste
ground black pepper
1 (4 to 6 pound)
This turned out ok, but wasn't as flavorful as I would have hoped. My almost 6 lb hen took about 45 minutes longer to cook than specified.
My husband and I loved it! I searched "whole oven baked chicken" and just used the first recipe I saw, and I'm glad I did. I used all of the ingredients as directed, but added about 2 TBSP of honey.
I did not use our dutch oven though, I lined a glass pan with foil and covered it with foil. I baked it at 375 for 2 hours. then uncovered on Broil for 5 minutes and it was soooo soooo juicy, my husband pulled the bone right out of it! It was so easy to whip up all the ingredients too. Try this!
The flavor was great and not overpowering at all. OH I JUST remembered, I did add one bouillon cube, instead of poultry seasoning.
I baked it at 350, 20min per pound plus an extra 15. Added ginger curry and garlic. Turned out excellent!! Also brined the chicken and put slices of butter in between the skin and chicken. Added pieces of bacon on top.
If you cook this recipe much longer than 1 hour and 15 minutes, your chicken will be dry....and please see that there has been an edit to the recipe. You are supposed to turn the chicken breast side up for the last 15 minutes. I do not know whether or not elevation makes the difference in the cooking times, but I am sure it does.
This is a nice, easy chicken recipe. Our cluck was on the heavier side and it took an additional 35 minutes of cooking time. I'll be interested to try cut up chicken next time. thanks for sharing maryjmohler
