This chicken was so delicious and easy to make. I've been cooking for some time, but wanted to try my first whole chicken. To be honest, I was a little intimidated. It turned out amazing however. Fall off the bone delicious.
Since it was just my husband and I; I cut the recipe in half and made a single young free range chicken. I marinaded the chicken for almost a full 24 hours before placing it in the oven and the bake time was closer to just 4 hours, which was when it reached 179-180 internal temp almost to the minute. (It was just luck that I had checked the temp 10 minutes prior in anticipation with a faster cook time with a smaller chicken and realized it was almost done) If you plan to do the same, I highly recommend monitoring your bird to avoid drying it out.
I also didn't have a roasting pan prior to making this, so I had to use baking dish and it turned out perfectly fine. I made sure to pour the juices over the chicken just prior to serving and it was divine.
