foodie: brown bag roasted chicken recipe..

always looking for the perfect chicken recipe..

Ingredients

    • 1 (3- to 3 1/2-pound) chicken
    • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 onion, halved
    • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
    • 1 tablespoon ground hot Hungarian paprika

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Rinse chicken, pat dry, and remove any excess fat. Generously sprinkle chicken inside and out with salt and pepper. Place onion and rosemary inside cavity; rub skin with paprika.
  3. Lay a standard-side brown paper grocery bag on its side; place chicken inside bag and tie bag with kitchen twine to enclose. Place bagged chicken on a rimmed baking sheet; transfer to lower third of oven, making sure there is plenty of room between the bag and the top of the oven. Roast chicken for 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Remove chicken from oven and carefully open bag to release steam. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh should reach 165 degrees and juices should run clear when thigh is pierced with the tip of a sharp knife. Let stand for 10 minutes before carving; serve warm.
