Baked Sunday Chicken – Whole Roasted Chicken Recipe

Recipe for baking a whole chicken

We have this whole baked chicken quite often, especially when chickens go on sale. It’s like having a mini turkey, so I like to serve mine with dressing, sweet potatoes, green beans, and cranberry sauce. It’s almost like Thanksgiving!
