I love a good whole roasted chicken for a relatively effortless weeknight dinner. Yes, Publix does make some amazing rotisserie chickens and I do occasionally cheat and buy those but I still prefer to cook a whole chicken at home myself.
This recipe uses a brown grocery bag to roast the chicken. The bag keeps moisture and steam inside and creates a juicy bird. If you have at least 24 hours brine the chicken which will make it even more tender. I cooked this one pictured with out brining and I was very pleased with the results.
The results are a perfectly roasted chicken which is moist and tender.
