Simple and healthy whole cut chicken from the butcher’s block!
Meat: Cut Whole Chicken
Weight: 3 lbs
Feeds: 3-4 people
Why we like it!
My family always loves roasted and it is definitely a favorite and no fuss meal. I always roasted
chickens whole, simply because they were easier to prepare. However, I found cutting them into pieces
made a lot less waste, easier left overs, and insures more even cooking with crispy skin on every piece.
All that and in a lot less time! Now we still love whole chickens, and use them often, but this is a quick way to get a
wholesome meal on the table. We save the bones that are left over, and will freeze them if needed for a future bone broth.
How to Cook a Cut Whole Chicken
Materials and Ingredients:
- 9×13 Pyrex dish or roasting pan
- Fresh chicken cut up
- Olive oil or oil of your choice
- Seasonings: T-Bone, Turmeric (you can use salt, pepper, onion, garlic, turmeric, or whatever else you like!)
- First, take the chicken out of the refrigerator for half hour or more to get it to room temperature.
- Next, Preheat your oven to 375.
- While the oven preheats, start by taking a cooking pan or dish coated lightly with oil.
- Next, place the chicken in skin side up and use more oil to cover each piece. (Use your hands to make sure they’re coated evenly!)
- When you are finished, wash your hands thoroughly and season the chicken pieces. I like to use T-bone seasoning from Greenpoint Treading Company and some turmeric, because of its health benefits. It also adds a nice color to the chicken!
- Finally after seasoning, place the tray in the oven and cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
For easier cooking/preparation you can ask your butcher for a fresh chicken about 3 pounds average, cut into
1/8ths. I also like them to remove the breast bone (makes for more even cooking and easier serving).
You can ask to keep it if you would like, for bone broth!
We serve almost every meat with potato, or pasta, and a vegetable! We try to eat organic and non-gmo
when possible. Simple, and natural!
We give Thee thanks for all Thy benefits which we have received from Thy bounty through Christ Our Lord.
