Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Additional Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours

Servings: 6



1 (3 lb) whole chicken, giblets removed

salt and black pepper to taste

1 tbsp. onion powder, or to taste

½ cup butter or margarine

One stalk of celery, leaves removed



The oven should be preheated to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Place the chicken in a roasting pan and liberally sprinkle it with salt, pepper, and onion powder inside and out. Put three tbsp. of the remaining butter in the cavity of the chicken and place dollops of it on the outside. Place three or four slices of celery cut into it in the pit of the chicken.

In a preheated oven, bake the chicken uncovered for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the juices run clear and the meat is no longer pink at the bone. The thickest region of the thigh, close to the bone, should register 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 degrees Celsius) on an instant-read thermometer.

Take out of the oven, then baste with drippings. Before serving, let the food rest for about 30 minutes under a foil cover.
