"This is the BEST chicken, Mom!" was the review I received from my family after making this recipe. For a 8lb chicken I doubled the recipe except for the salt (4 tsp Kosher salt) and the Cayenne pepper (3/4 tsp) - my kids don't like things too spicy. I started the cooking temp at 400 for the first 30 minutes then decreased the temp to 275 for the remaining 3 hours. I also basted after the temp change and every hour after that. I found that during cooking I had to add some chicken stock to the bottom of the pan to get enough drippings to make a lot of gravy - the gravy is fantastic! Just used a butter/flour base and whisked in the drippings. This chicken is the most tender and juicy I have ever made at home. At the request of my husband and kids, I have made this chicken four more times since my initial attempt. Thanks for a great recipe!!
