For the best slow cooked baked chicken, use my favorite way to cook chicken. It's a family favorite!

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 2 lemons
  • lemon pepper seasoning
  • vegetable oil spray

We love lemon pepper chicken but you can use any seasonings you like.

Steps:

  1. You use a empty 35 oz large aluminum coffee can. Wash inside and out remove any plastic that might cover the can. Make sure to dry the inside of can well.
  2. Have chicken ready. Rinse all cavities and pat dry. We cut two lemons in half and stuff into chicken. Then sprinkle lemon pepper on entire chicken top to bottom and all around wings, making sure to include all crevasses.
  3. Spray inside of coffee can with vegtable spray. Stuff chicken in can. Seal off end of can with aluminum foil. Place in a pan with sides (example: lasagna pan).
  4. Bake at 250 degrees F for two hours (may be longer for a large bird).
  5. When chicken is done cooking, it's the most melt in your mouth tender chicken you'll ever taste! Bon appetit!

If you don't have a bottle of pomegranate molasses, do yourself a favour and get one! It comes in handy for all sorts of exotic, tasty recipes. Here is a super simple recipe using it to make an amazing, complex tasting main course. If you can't get a hold of the molasses, use pomegranate juice (available at most stores) and a couple teaspoons of honey or sugar.

Total Time: 35

Yield: 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 orange
  • 3 Tbsp pomegranate molasses
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • oil
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • salt

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Grate garlic in a bowl.
  2. Squeeze orange onto grated garlic.
  3. Add pomegranate molasses and honey to garlic orange mixture. Blend well.
  4. Ad

  5. Sprinkle in the paprika.
  6. Heat oil in a cast-iron or heavy nonstick skillet over med-high heat. Sprinkle chicken thighs with salt. Place thighs in skillet, skin side down, and cook three minutes.
  7. Flip and cook another three minutes. You just want to get a crispy exterior.
  8. Transfer chicken to baking pan and place in preheated oven. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn the chicken and drizzle generously with the pomegranate molasses mixture. Bake for 10 mminutes more.
  9. Drizzle any remaining pomegranate molasses on to chicken and serve straight away.

Does anyone have a delicious recipe for baked chicken? I am trying to force myself to eat baked chicken for health reasons but I can't seem to find the right seasoning to give it a good flavor. I use salt, pepper, and garlic powder on chicken parts, cover with foil and bake for 30-40 mins. Do you have a better way of preparing it?

This one came from the American Heart Assoc. cookbook...husband said "it's a keeper!"

1 cup fat-free milk

1 cup crushed cornflake crumbs

1 tsp. crushed dried rosemary

1/2 tsp. pepper

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts(trim excess fat)

Preheat oven 400* line a baking dish with foil and lightly spray with vegetable oil (I use spray olive oil)

Pour milk in a bowl

In another bowl combine the rest of the ingredients

(it said to rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towels, but I omit that part)

Dip chicken into milk and then into crumb mixture.

Arrange chicken into your baking pan so that the pieces don't touch.

Bake 30 minutes

YUMMY!!!

Roll chicken breasts in egg followed by crushed French Fried Onions (located in the canned vegetable section of the grocery.) Cook at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Adds flavor without calories.

When making food to take to someone who is ill I always make a baked chicken. I simply coat the whole chicken in Mrs. Dash Seasoning and bake the chicken at 350 degrees according to package. I do not use pieces only the whole chicken. I always have everyone ask for the recipe, and when I tell them I only used Mrs. Dash they are surprised.

Yes. place chicken parts on a rack over top of a baking pan filled with 1 inch of water. Cook at 400 degrees for 20-30 min. Skin will get very crispy and chicken will be moist . Use oregano or lemon pepper on top of the skin for extra yummy flavour.

Pour some salsa over it and bake it.

You can also use marinara sauce, or sugar-free apricot preserves.

How about Buffalo flavored roast chicken. That is red hot sauce sauce for coating. then bake.

My Corn flakes recipe is to mix garlic, paprika, salt, pepper, and optional cayane pepper powder. Add to corn flakes. Then bake.

I sometimes bake plain with the skin on and salt and pepper, then bake and remove the skin and fat after. More flavor.

Baking is not the only way to serve healthy chicken. Boiling or poaching is also good. It all depends on how you treat it. Leaving skin on till cooked then discard. Boiling chicken broth can be cooled and fat can be taken off and the broth can be used for fat free gravy, or soup. Boiled chicken can be used many ways.

Fat free broth can make great soup. Vegetable, rice, noodle, soup can be made healthy.

Mix 1/2 to 3/4 Cup Apricot Jam, a splash of soy sauce and 1/4 Cup of water to make a glaze to put over the chicken. Bake as you normally would. Very tasty! You can use sugar free preserves and low salt soy sauce, too.

Using fresh ingredients will make it taste much better, like the minced garlic instead of powder. But my daughter loves to use Italian dressing on hers. But you could use any favorite dressing. BBQ sauce is another favorite. Using a roasting pan will help drain off the fat for other added health benefits too.

A seasoning salt like "Johnny's" is great on chicken. Just sprinkle and roast. I love it cold the next day, too.

Easy, quick, good. Spray casserole with oil. Either brush chicken pieces with butter or olive oil. Season with Nature Seasoning (this is all purpose seasoning and sold in spice area), or seasonings you like on chicken. Bake in 350 oven for 45 to 60 minutes. Baste occasionally. Good left over.

Remove giblets from a whole chicken, rinse, and dry well with an old terrycloth towel. Mix and liberally apply this dry rub inside and out:

3 tablespoons coarse ground pepper

3 tablespoons brown sugar

3 tablespoons paprika

2 tablespoons salt

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Bake at 350 in a pan with low sides that allows air to circulate around the bird, till juices run clear, about an hour and a half.

The rub recipe makes enough for several chickens, and can be used on other meats as well.

I think this is way better than the supermarket rotisserie chickens.

If you are baking a whole chicken, throw in a cut up apple and a lemon in the cavity. It keeps it moist and adds a delicious flavor without a lot of salt. It would work well with rosemary or Mrs. Dash.

One suggestion is to cut it in pieces, place fresh chopped basil leaves and chopped fresh tomatoes on top then sprinkle with some garlic salt or use fresh garlic and sprinkle salt on. Cover with foil & bake You can sprinkle parmesan cheese on this too. Another kind my family likes is when I sprinkle a little sage and some salt & pepper on the chicken and bake it. Also, Lawry's seasoned salt is good. I also like to put salsa over the chicken and cook it, then you can put it in a tortilla and top it with cheese or sour cream and lettuce. I used to have a recipe for a wine marinade for chicken that was great, but I've lost it. I also agree with the earlier post about boiling chicken, it's very versatile. Happy eating.

This works best on chicken pieces.

1 bottle of soy sauce

1 bottle of lemon juice

1 large onion cut in to slices

Pour everything in to a large zip loc bag. Add chicken pieces. Marinate over night.

Bake in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour or until juices run clear.

This is also good grilled.

I bake my chicken in a clay baker, no spices needed. This crisps the skin and gives it all the flavor it needs. Of course if you are removing the skin, you need to add other things to give flavor.

If you are baking the chicken as opposed to deep frying it, try any of the many Shake and Bake coatings. They are all tasty and there are many varieties.

If you have type B or type AB blood then you should not be eating chicken. It makes my AB blood cells stick together and my blood gets thick. Read "Eat Right for Your Type" it is a good book.

What made the difference for me was using a meat thermometer!! Chicken is so commonly overcooked that we barely know what properly cooked tastes like. It should be moist like Thanksgiving turkey!

When eating chicken for your health you should remove the skin before baking. Some of the ways I season my skinless chicken is to sprinkle with Italian seasoning of some sort & freshly ground black pepper. Put into a Ziploc bag & allow to marinate several hours or overnight in the fridge. For an oriental flair you can add low sodium soy sauce & garlic powder or fresh garlic to a ziplock bag & add your skinless chicken pieces & allow to marinate for several hours or overnight in the fridge-turn often. Another nice touch is low sodium soy sauce & fresh or ground ginger. I often cut up several fresh lemons & sueeze over my skinless chicken pieces in a Ziplock bag & toss in the lemon rinds for good measure. Sometimes I add garlic to the lemon & sometimes I dont. A good oven-fried chicken is to add celery salt & pepper-a touch of garlic powder some onion powder & ground sage to the flour in a Ziploc bag. Rinse skinless chicken pieces with water & add to flour mixture. Shake. Place on cookie sheet lightly oiled with olive oil drizzle chicken pieces very lightly with olive oil & bake until done-turn over partway through. When I marinate chicken for baking (after putting my chicken in the oven) I add more skinless chicken to the bag & leftover marinate & place flat in the freezer to save for the next time. Then all you have to do is remove it from the freezer-put it in the fridge & allow to thaw & marinate. Always-Always-ALWAYS rinse chicken under cold running water before using to avoid contaminating yourself with whatever might be on the outside of the chicken left over from processing!!! And since chicken (or any other meat for that matter) turns (spoils) uite easily-ALWAYS marinate in the refrigerator!!!

I love the McCormick seasoning. You can find it in the same section that you find gravy mixes in the supermarket. The spices also come with a bag that you cook the chicken in. It turns out really great! My family also likes the seasoning that they have for porkchops too. We have started baking our pork chops instead of frying. The best porkchops and chicken that I have had!
