HOW LONG DO YOU ROAST A CHICKEN?
Generally speaking, a whole chicken needs to cook at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes per pound. I cook my chicken at a higher temperature, 400 degrees F, to get that deep golden brown crispy skin, so it should take more like 15-16 minutes per pound.
HOW DO YOU PREPARE A CHICKEN FOR ROASTING?
To prepare a whole chicken for roasting, you’ll want to remove the giblet bag if there’s one inside the chicken cavity. The next step is to tuck the wings underneath the breast to prevent the wing tips from burning. Finally, tie the legs together with kitchen twine.
