Note:Using the ingredients below you can marinade your chicken(use all pieces, spit breasts, legs, thighs)and in a large size zip lock bag or bags and marinate them overnight). You can use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. We used fresh garlic to bake but I think garlic powder would be best for the marinade.
I remember eating chicken at my husband's cousin years ago and it was so delicious. Her Dad was a butcher and did lots to bring out the best in chicken and pork.
|Seasoned Chicken, Macaroni and Potato Salad and baked beans!|
I remember he would rub the chicken with a mixture of seasonings blended with fat back and rubbed all over the chicken. So moist and juicy it wold fall out the bone is was fabulous.
To I am trying my best to somewhat duplicate it, eliminating the fat back and using olive oil.
This recipe can be made using chicken breasts or chicken parts or both.
Note: Most of my recipes are made for two but can be easily duplicated.
Note 2: Heavy on the seasoning. The more the better for absolute delicious flavor!
2 pcs. bone in split Chicken Breast(skin on)
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp. crushed Rosemary
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried parsley
1 tsp.oregano (if desired)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
Mix olive oil, garlic, rosemary, basil , parsley, salt and pepper together. Let stand for a few minutes for the herbs to soften and season the oil.
Rub all over the chicken making sure to coat all. Place chicken in a roasting pan and cover slightly with foil. Bake 350 degrees for approx. 1 hour or more depending on how many pounds of chicken you are cooking; remove cover and bake 1/2 hour more or until tender and top is crispy.
Add salad or side and you'll have a great dinner. Today I served it with my 4th of July Salad sides.. Happy Cooking!
|Let set for a few minutes so that seasoning can blend with the oil before rubbing on chicken.|
