Whole Chickens

Collection of whole chicken recipesjump to the recipes

Cooking a whole chicken can be one of the easiest and tastiest way to eat chicken! Roasted chicken has crisp, delicious skin and baking a chicken yields tender, moist meat. We have over 500 recipes for cooking a whole chicken. You can buy whole chickens in different sizes. Fryers are the smallest, broilers are the next step up. Both of these sizes are common. Roaster chickens are the largest and larger supermarkets should carry them as well. Roasters are usually more expensive so some markets only carry the cheaper, smaller chickens.
