Best way to cook a whole chicken

Posted 7/13/2017 10:19am by Reuben DeMaster.

Don't let a whole chicken intimidate you.  Our organically raised, pastured chicken is excellent, especially when prepared correctly.  Prepared this way, you will have delicious chicken for sandwiches or other recipes like chicken salad and casseroles. One of our family's favorites, this recipe is tender, juicy and flavorful every time.
