This should really be called "Italian Baked Chicken" but since I made it up, it’s now named after me :)

  • 1 whole chicken, whole, free-range, organic
  • 2 tbs. Italian herbs or seasoning, organic
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place 1-2 heaping tablespoons of coconut oil in a small pan and melt over low heat until it becomes liquid. In a bowl, mix 1-2 teaspoons of each of the spices (you can use whichever ones you like). Pour the melted coconut oil into the bowl with the spices and mix well. Let the coconut oil/spice mixture cool down a bit. Using your hands, rub this mixture under the skin of the chicken. Make sure to coat it thoroughly. Place the chicken, breast side down, in a glass baking pan. (This will make sure the breast is juicy) Bake in the oven for 2-3 hours. (This will be determined by the size of your chicken. After the first hour and a half, begin to check it consistently every 10-15 minutes until cooked through)

This chicken was even delicious after it was re-heated. I made it in the early morning and it was ready by 10am. After letting it cool down a bit (20 minutes), I covered it with foil and placed it in the refrigerator. When I got home at 5pm, I set the oven at 250°F and placed the chicken in there for 20 minutes. It was still great. So if you need to have dinner ready ahead of time, you can still use this recipe.
