Roasted chicken on the plate

Easy and Amazing Dinner!

My son turns 16 this month and his one request was to spend a few days at an island house one of our friends generously let’s us use now and then. We took a couple of his buddies and had an amazing time!
Unfortunately, I didn’t have internet access on the island and couldn’t blog.  I do have some fun things to share with you now that I’m back, but for today I thought I would post a recipe I discovered for roasting chicken that’s super easy, inexpensive and delicious! My kids love it!

Whole roasting chickens (I roast 2 at a time. One for dinner and one for sandwiches)
kosher salt
2 tsp. olive oil

Preheat oven 450 degrees
Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken using approx. 1/2 tsp. salt and pepper for each side.
Place chicken in roasting pan, breast down. (I spray the pan with PAM to help with clean up later!)
Sprinkle 1 tsp. olive oil on back side of each chicken and lightly rub it in. (the salt and pepper make a bit of a mess but it’s worth it!)
Put in oven uncovered and set timer for 30 minutes (45 minutes if roasting 2 at a time)
After 30-45 minutes turn chicken to breast side up.
Roast for another 30 to 45 minutes or until meat thermometer is at 170 degrees.

Meat will be incredibly moist! Enjoy!
