Expert Tips

  • If crispy skin is desired, place carved chicken skin side up on foil-lined baking pan, and broil 4 inches from broiler element 3 to 5 minutes or until skin is crisp and browned.
  • For extra flavor, use smoked paprika instead of plain.
  • Larger birds may require a slightly longer cook time.
