Baked Cut Up Chicken
Baking a chicken is an easy and affordable way to feed a crowd. After an hour of bake time, you’ll have 8 pieces of delicious chicken ready to eat at home, just like a restaurant prepares, but for much less money! We are using a simple salt and pepper seasoning in this recipe, but you can feel free to use your own favorite seasoning like lemon pepper, cajun or Italian! Enjoy!
Pat your chicken pieces dry and rub with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place skin side up on a baking pan on top of a sheet of aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray. Make sure the pieces have room between them.
Place into an oven preheated to 400°F and roast for 30 minutes. Turn heat down to 350° and roast for another 30 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165°F.
If desired, use the broiler for 5 minutes to crisp the skin of the chicken even more. Remove from oven and enjoy!
