  • 6 to 8 bone-in chicken pieces
  • fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the chicken so that there’s some space between the pieces. Season the chicken generously with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  3. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until juices run clear and skin is crispy and golden brown. Remove the chicken from the oven and allow it to rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Baked chicken is wonderful to keep on hand in the freezer. Chop the cooked and cooled meat and store it in 2-cup portions, airtight, in the freezer to use in recipes, fill sandwiches or burritos, or to top salads.
