Recipe: Juicy Roasted Chicken

Have you ever wanted to roast your own chicken, but the though of prepping it and roasting it yourself is just scaring you away? Never fear! It is WAY easier than you think. Whether you are a seasoned pro in the kitchen or just learning how to cook, this recipe is for you!

My husband is not a fan of chicken, unless it's moist and hidden within dishes.  So, I'm always trying new chicken recipes that he will enjoy.
Tonight was my second time making this recipe and both times was absolutely delicious. The celery keeps it so moist and the meat falls right off the bone. Plus, we now have lots of leftovers for future recipes!

What you need:
1 (3 lb) whole chicken- with giblets removed
1 celery stalk, cut into 3 larger pieces
1/2 c. butter
1 tsp garlic powder
Salt and Pepper to taste

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Step 2: Place chicken in roasting pan. Add 3 tablespoons and celery pieces inside the chicken cavity.

Step 3: Rub the remaining butter all over the outside of the chicken. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Step 4: Bake uncovered for 1 hr 45 min (until internal temperature reaches 180 degrees). Remove from heat and let rest for 15 minutes before cutting.
