This is one of the easiest dinners ever, and one of the best chickens I’ve ever made (although nothing will beat the chicken my Oma makes!).
  • 1 whole chicken (remove the neck and giblets if they’re still in there – yes, gross!) – keep the skin on!
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1/4 C apple cider
  • 1/4 C white wine
  • splash of water
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 t French Green Blend Salt (it says there is Atlantic sea salt, sea lettuce and dulse nori in it, in case you can’t find the blend)
  1. Line a baking dish with foil, drizzle foil with olive oil and a tiny sprinkle of salt and pepper, and pour in cider, wine and water.
  2. Place chicken, breast side up, and drizzle with oil and season with salts and pepper.
  3. Bake at 375F for 90 minutes (basting every 30), or until a meat thermometer inserted into a thick part of the meat (not touching bone) reads 180F.

I served this with cheesy polenta (basically – cornmeal in boiling water, with cheese stirred in) and sauteed veggies. It would also be great with any sort of potatoes and baked broccoli. Oh, and eat the skin – it tastes amazing! 🙂
