The easiest way to oven roast a low salt chicken. My go-to for meal prep for the week!
Author: Megan Byrd, RD
1 tbsponion powder
Thaw chicken completely. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Remove all giblets/neck of the chicken.
Place chicken in a roasting pan and rub olive oil over entire chicken. I line my roasting pan with aluminum foil to make clean up a breeze!
In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, and paprika.
Rub seasoning mixture over entire chicken, coating evenly.
Roast chicken breast side down in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until fully cooked at 165 degrees (take temperature where the leg meets the body)
Allow to cool at least 30 minutes.
Shred meat and enjoy!
If you're looking for an even easier way to meal prep your chicken, use your crockpot instead of the oven! Cook the chicken in the slow cooker for 4 hours on high, or until it's fully cooked at 165 degrees!
