In the 12/6/10 newsletter: Nancy ~ I am wondering if perhaps the chicken recipe Sandra in Lubbock, in the Dec 5th newsletter, is looking for was sent in by our friend, Mr. Myron Drinkwater entitled Blasted Chicken? Blasted Chicken Myron Drinkwater
Prepare a whole fryer chicken (3 1/2 to 4 pounds) by rinsing it under cold water, patting it with paper towels to partially dry it and then rubbing a seasoning of your choice on it to coat it. Some just use salt and pepper. Line a 13 x 9 x 2-inch Pyrex or baking pan with aluminum foil, spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray and place the chicken breast side down on top of the foil. Center the chicken in the baking dish and DO NOT cover it. Bake, uncovered, in a preheated oven at 425°. for 1 hour and 15 minutes. DO NOT open the oven door once you put the chicken in to bake until the 1 hour and 15 minutes have elapsed. Take it out and let it set about 10 minutes and take the chicken apart. It will be very brown and crispy and the juiciest chicken you have ever put into your mouth. GUARANTEED....This is a TNT recipe and one you will all love and oh sooooo easy to make and with the aluminum foil the clean up is a snap.
Note: The breast side doesn't get as brown and crispy as the back side so maybe putting it on a rack in the baking pan would help crisp the whole chicken.
Sure do miss Mr. Drinkwater's contributions to our newsletter. Sunshine in South Texas
