Cooking and Baking are two of my favorite pass times. I’m a Foodie! I can say that I got it honestly and passed it along to my offspring. We love to cook and try new recipes and we also have our favorites along with traditional holiday recipes. There are certain things I only prepare once or twice a year! One of our favorite meals is a Whole Sanderson Farms Roasted Chicken with homemade gravy, collard greens, yams and white rice. Sometimes we substitute the rice for mashed potatoes.
I recently went to my neighborhood Walmart Supercenter and purchased a Sanderson Farms Whole Young Chicken. It’s just the right size to feed my family in one sitting! I like Sanderson Farms Products because it’s 100% natural with no salt or artificial ingredients. The fact that there are independent family farmers living right in my community makes me proud. Hidden ingredients and pumping are things I don’t have to worry about. Sanderson Farms Chicken is farm to market fresh.
There are so many recipe options when you visit the Sanderson Farms website. I love the convenience of being able to look for a specific product, see it’s nutritional value and then find recommended recipes that I can prepare for my family. I really like finding recipes like the Chicken Taco Salad or Chicken Burrito that we always seem to order when we eat out at our favorite Mexican Restaurant and now I can make it at home! I would much rather eat a homemade meal than eat out at a restaurant on any given day.
Recipe: Whole Roasted Chicken
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
1 Sanderson Farms® Whole Frying Chicken, remove giblets (I use it in my homemade gravy)
1 tablespoon seasoning salt
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash (Original)
1 tablespoon of Soy Sauce
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
Let the seasonings sit on your chicken and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove chicken from refrigerator 10 minutes prior to cooking. Place chicken in roasting pan.
Roast chicken for 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 170°F in the thickest part of the breast meat, and 180°F in the thigh, or until all juices run clear.
When chicken is done, remove it from roasting pan and let it rest 10 minutes.
You can use some of the the chicken drippings as a base for your gravy. Place some of it into a bowl. Set aside to make homemade gravy.
