Mom’s Parsley Garlic chicken

Prep time: 15 min     Cook time:  3.5 hours    Servings: 8 – 12 people

Skill level: Easy

This recipe was given to me by my mom. I enjoyed making it as it was easy and stress-free. I chose to make two whole chickens at 11 pounds total, as I have to feed my husband. If you so choose to make one chicken, then use half portions of all the ingredients. Or you can make both chickens, and cut up the second chicken and put it in the freezer. If you have a baking sheet with a rack, that would be better for the chicken to cook more evenly. Enjoy!

Chicken is ready if the instant thermometer reads 165 Fahrenheit when inserted in the inner thigh close to the bone, but not on the bone.

 

When chicken is done, remove it from the oven and brush on the juice that dripped on top of the chicken. Put it in the oven and bake for another 10 – 15 minutes to get the top to be crispy.
