Emergency Roast Chicken - Paleo, Whole30
Emergency Roast Chicken is easy, quick, delicious and comes out perfect every single time. Try serving it with some of my famous Salsa Verde.
- 1 3-3.5 lbs organic free-range chicken
- 1 tbsp roughly chopped fresh rosemary
- kosher salt
- freshly-cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 425F.
Rinse and pat chicken dry. Half-spatchcock the bird, leaving one side of the backbone intact. Season both sides with salt, pepper, and fresh rosemary. Lay chicken breast-side-up in a parchment-paper-lined roasting tray.
Roast for 40-45min or until thickest part of the breast registers 165F on an instant read meat thermometer.
Baste bird with rendered juices. Switch oven to max broil and cook an additional 5-6 minutes or until skin is crispy.
Transfer Emergency Roast Chicken to carving board, let rest 5-10min before carving. Serve with Uncle Ronny's Salsa Verde (see recipe here).
