Cooking your chicken this way will pack in a ton of flavor without adding cholesterol or fat to your meal. You bet your food will be tasty but at the same time it is good for you!

Prepare the following ingredients: 1 chicken whole or cut up, olive oil, salt and pepper, fresh or dried herbs of your choice, carrots, garlic, onions and your choice of wine.

Season the outside of the chicken with salt and pepper and place inside a baking dish. Rub the chicken with a little bit of olive oil to crisp up the outside while leaving the inside tender and moist.

Place the chicken inside the oven and bake without any cover for an hour to an hour and a half or until the skin of the chicken is golden brown and the meat is cooked through. One way to test if this simple baked chicken recipe is done is to shake hands with the thighs of the chicken. If the thighs feel firm and meaty, your chicken is done.
