Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve this flavorful chicken with a crisp, mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Dressing and warm, whole wheat rolls.
Cooking Know-How
Tucking the wings under the chicken prevents the tips from burning and helps balance the chicken better during cooking.
Cooking Know-How
The general rule for roasting a chicken is to bake the chicken at 350°F for 20 min. per pound. When testing for doneness, insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of one of the thighs, being careful to not let the thermometer touch the bone.
