Candy’s Cozi Classic Chicken

My good friend, Candy, entered this recipe in a recipe contest a year or so ago and won a sizable chunk of change, so it has got to be good. Right? Right!

3 – 4 lb chicken parts (8 pieces)
Olive oil
Ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Briefly run chicken pieces under water to rinse and pat dry with paper towels.

Drizzle olive oil on bottom of a roasting pan. Thoroughly rub chicken pieces with olive oil to coat.

Sprinkle both sides of chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Place chicken pieces with skin side up in the pan.

Cook for 30 minutes at 400°F. Lower oven temp to 350°F and cook for 15-30 minutes more or until juices run clear (not pink) when poked with a sharp knife or the internal temperature of the chicken breasts is 170°F.

Optional: To brown chicken pieces, place under broiler for 7-10 minutes of cooking.
When chicken is done, remove from oven and tent with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving

What did the family think? We all LOVED it. Yes, even our youngest who can’t stand chicken said it was good. That’s a huge compliment.

    Can you make this with boneless skinless chicken breasts? If so, do you do anything differently?
