Better check that internal temp at 165 and not wait till 180. Moist and juicy takes a big hit at 180 degrees.

Hello there! The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends 180 degrees for whole chickens. The white meat tends to cook faster then the drumsticks and thighs, so make sure to insert thermometer into dark meat area. Enjoy!

Thanks Test Kitchen folks. If I did as the USDA suggests on roasting my chicken, don't believe I would ever enjoy chicken again. lol Take the bird out at 165 internal, cover for 10 min and you have moist and completely cooked chicken. At least that has been my experience.

This sounds so good. I will baste the chicken several times to get the flavor through the whole chicken better. I get garlic chicken from Walmart and it is so good. This sounds like it will be really close to Walmarts.

I squeezed1/2 of a large lemon and drizzled all over chicken put the lemon half inside chicken melted about 1 tablespoon butter and mixed it with olive oil salt pepper then rubbed on used the chicken broth for basting pretty good this way!

Do you pour the chicken broth into the cavity or into the pan?

Hi there! You pour the chicken broth into the cavity. Enjoy!
