How Long To Roast A Chicken? 

A 5 to 6 pound chicken takes about 1 ½ hours to cook through. If the chicken weighs more or less than that you will want to adjust the cooking times according to the weight of the chicken. Cooking chicken can vary depending on how cold the chicken is or the density of the chicken itself. It is best to start with 15 minutes then add 20 minutes per pound of chicken as a rule of thumb. Then using a meat thermometer checking for the internal temperature of the chicken to reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Do You Cover Chicken When Baking?

For this chicken with vegetables recipe it does not need to be covered. Leaving the chicken uncovered will help the skin crisp up nicely in the oven. If you feel that the chicken is browning quickly create a loose fitting tent shape foil to prevent any further browning while it finishes cooking.

For a Crispy Roast Chicken:

Check on the chicken throughout the roasting process. If you see that the chicken is not browning simply brush it will more herb butter over top or baste with the juices from the bottom of the pan to keep the chicken moist and adding a crips outside layer. Using this method will make the chicken crispy quickly. Watch over the chicken after this process is done to make sure it does not brown too much.
