A basic oven roast chicken should be in everyone’s repertoire, unless you are a vegetarian and never want to cook chicken of any kind, but that is a completely different discussion.

Roasting or baking  a whole chicken in the oven is a simple as rinse, season, and roast. It’s that easy. If you want to start to get fancy, truss the chicken before roasting to plump up those breasts. It will taste better and look better.

Easy Roast Chicken Recipe that's juicy, crispy skin and delicious! @bestrecipebox

For those who love a nice crispy skin, the key is to dry the skin as much as possible. When we have the forethought, we’ll salt the skin a few hours beforehand and then allow the chicken to air dry in the fridge for a few hours or even up to overnight. First rinse and pat dry the chicken. Next, salt it liberally with kosher salt to help dry out excess water from the skin. As it sits in the fridge, the moisture will come up to the surface allowing it to cook off in the oven.

Smoked Whole Chicken

 

Amazing whole chicken recipe: How to Smoke A Whole Chicken in the Smoker from ChickenRecipeBox.comWe are no strangers to the smoker and slow & low BBQ. But for all the hours spent with the mesquite smoldering and cherry branches smoking, all the pounds of brisket and pork butt delightfully slow cooked, until recently we’ve never smoked a whole chicken. Roast chickens make a near weekly appearance for us. As we get older, the lighter meat of chicken feels better to eat, is quite tasty, and sits in the belly much less heavy than pork or beef (although they are still quite delicious). Yet we just didn’t think about smoking a chicken in the smoker. However that thought did creep into our minds recently as we had the BBQ craving kick in, and we are forever changed.

One word, “Aammazzing!” This is something which will now be making a frequent appearance on our summertime tables. Chicken is perfect to pick up a perfect amount of smokiness, the meat stayed moist, and it was simple as can be. You’ll want to keep the smoker temperatures between 250°F-300°F, add in some fruit or nut wood branches or chips (cherry wood, apple, apricot, pecan, almond, etc…)  couple times during the cooking to give a nice smoke flavor, and if you have the foresight, brine the chicken before hand for at least a couple hours, although overnight is usually best.

Oh, and if you want to go over the top, use a good lump charcoal, we usually use a mesquite lump charcoal and have always been happy with the flavors. We smoke in a grill which has a side smoker box. When filling the box with charcoal, we will pile the lit charcoal next to the side vent door (furthest from the grill), then stack the unlit charcoal going towards the grill (not on top of the already lit charcoal). This will allow the charcoal to slowly burn its way towards the grill and not all burn at once.

Time factor for this smoked chicken recipe will vary depending on how big your whole chicken is and the temperatures you keep your smoker at, so it is best to check done-ness by measure the internal temperature of the chicken, at least until you are familiar enough with the process to do it by feel and sight. At the thickest part of the breast is should be around 165-170°F. Usually that will take around 3 1/2 hours for the average chicken.

Enjoy! The chicken goes great with a good barbecue sauce too. Here’s a link for a homemade barbecue sauce (click on link for recipe). And don’t forget to save the bones to make an amazing stock. Just follow the same directions as for the basic chicken stock (click on link for recipe).

Is it even possible to have healthy chicken “buffalo” wings? Well, with a few compromises and an open mind, this recipe can certainly satisfy chicken wing cravings without all the fat. Our previous write up on frying vs. baking vs. pre-poaching shows the differences on how each technique can affect the calorie content.

This chicken wing recipe is healthier because the wings are slightly poached or steamed to render off excess fat. Unlike traditional buffalo wing recipes where butter is a main ingredient, this sauce has no butter in it and the flavor of the sriracha still comes through. With a tomato based sauce, combined with fragrant onions and garlic and spicy sriracha hot sauce, you won’t miss the butter.

Why would you want to truss a chicken? When trussing a chicken, you’re tying it with kitchen string to keep it compact and tight. This technique holds the chicken parts compact together, keeping the tips from drying out and ensuring a juicier breast.  The chicken cooks more evenly and the presentation is simply prettier too.

Trussing particularly helpful when roasting whole chickens in the oven and you’ll get an more even browning over the whole bird. For slow cooker roasted whole chicken, you don’t really need to truss the chicken because the slow cooker pretty much holds the chicken to a nice even shape, however if you like the chicken nice and plump shaped, it helps to truss it then too.

There are several ways to truss a chicken and this particular method is our favorite. Simple and quick, after getting the hang of it, one can easily truss the chicken in about 30 seconds.

It is an easy kitchen skill, fun to do, and your chicken will be tastier and more better looking. Truss on!

Baked Chicken Tenders

Yield: Serves 2-4

Total Time: 40 min

Healthier options for these baked chicken tenders would be to try using a little less bread crumbs. For gluten free folks, omit the flour and use rice flour or even corn starch for dredging. The cooking times will vary based on how thin or thick the chicken breast is cut, so take that into consideration when you slice the breasts.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Pre heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut chicken breasts into thin strips. The thinner they are, the quicker they will cook in the oven. Make sure to keep cuts same size and consistent for even cooking.
  3. In small bowl, beat 2 eggs. In medium bowl combine flour, salt and black pepper. In another small bowl, add bread crumbs.
  4. Dredge each strip of chicken in flour, then egg, then bread crumbs. Repeat for all chicken strips.
