Bacon Roasted Chicken

Borrowed and Shareing 

How do you take an ordinary roasted chicken recipe and turn it into something extraordinary that's going to get lots of oohs and aahs? Easy - you top it with lots of bacon! Our Bacon Roasted Chicken is sure to be a hit with everyone, 'cause it's so moist, flavorful, and, well...there's bacon involved!
What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened 
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 
  • 1 whole chicken (about 4 pounds) 
  • 1 onion, peeled and cut in half 
  • 8 strips raw bacon 
  • 1 cup chicken broth 
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place a roasting rack in a roasting pan.
  2. In a small bowl, combine butter, paprika, salt, and pepper; mix well. Rub mixture over entire chicken and place in roasting pan. Place onion in cavity of chicken. 
  3. Lay 4 strips of bacon on top of the chicken on a diagonal. Lay the remaining bacon strips in the opposite direction, creating a basket weave effect. Pour chicken broth into roasting pan; do not pour over chicken.
  4. Bake chicken 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours, or until juices run clear or a meat thermometer inserted in thigh reaches 180 degrees F., basting occasionally with broth.
