Baking a whole chicken

Chicken lovers want to cook the whole chicken and nothing but the whole chicken. All the flavors are there. The juices are amazing and if you want a particular piece it is there, moist and ready to eat.

It is not easy to capture the flavors of a whole baked chicken without cooking a whole chicken. There is not too much time needed to prepare and it taste so good. Even if it is for one person or a whole family, there will be none left over

There are so many meals that can be prepared from the baking of a whole chicken, from salads, soups and stews and don't forget the chicken sandwiches..
