Watch How To Make It

To ensure your baked chicken turns out perfectly every time, don't forget to let it rest after removing it from the oven. Allowing the chicken to rest for 10-15 minutes before carving helps redistribute the juices, resulting in a moist and flavorful bird. Additionally, when marinating the chicken, aim for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat fully. For even more intense flavor, marinate overnight in the refrigerator. And remember, don't discard the leftover bones and carcass! They can be used to make a delicious homemade chicken broth for soups or sauces, maximizing flavor and minimizing waste.
