Cooked Roasted Chicken


This recipe is based on a 4 lb. whole fryer chicken and can be adjusted depending on the size of the bird you purchased. 


1 whole fryer or roasting chicken
1 tablespoon Wildtree Natural Grapeseed Oil*
1 tablespoon Wildtree Herbes de Provence Blend*
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
2 carrots, roughly chopped
2 celery stalks, roughly chopped
2 onions, quartered 
* You can use any blend you prefer.

Method - Now this is the most important part. 

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Pat the chicken dry. Rub with oil and sprinkle with seasoning, salt and pepper on all sides and inside. Place on a roasting rack in a roasting pan or in a 9x13 pan on top of carrots and celery, breast side up. For added flavor, place onion quarters inside the cavity.  Tie the legs together with kitchen twine (if available) to help the chicken keep its shape and cook more evenly. Roast 25 to 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 375°F and roast another 30 to 40 minutes until juices run clear when a knife is pierced into thigh or meat thermometer reaches 165°F. Cover and let rest 10 minutes before carving.

Hormone Free Grass-Fed Beef, Pastured Turkey Pork, Open Range Chicken

The benefits of eating pasture raised, grass-fed meats are hard to deny. From the extra nutrients to the shaky ethics surrounding commercially raised animals, pasture-raised cows and free range chickens win every time. While we hear the most about steaks and beef, the same benefits can apply to any animal raised without hormones in its natural habitat. Typically pork or chicken is referred to as pasture raised, or free range instead, as these animals are natural omnivores and eat a little of everything. Our family farm produces grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and free range turkey and chicken. Our gourmet meats and dairy products are shipped fresh to customers in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and the Chicago, Illinois area. Pastured pork, beef, chicken, and turkey is not only better for the animal, but it’s also better for the consumer too. If you’ve shopped for meats at most grocery stores, you probably saw bright red packages of similar shapes and sizes, which is different from the varying packages of beef you would find when shopping with an small, local farmer. Each animal is unique, and John Henry’s doesn’t use steroids, hormones, or fatty feeds on our farm. This produces a higher-quality cut of meat that can vary in size, shape, and color depending on what muscles were exercised more. Grass-fed beef, and pasture raised turkey, pork, and chicken also have fat that is more yellow due to healthy beta carotenes that are present. We also cut each of our meats fresh and ship it to you the same day! If you haven’t tried grass-fed beef, pastured pork, or free range turkey and chicken you don’t know what you’re missing.
