How to Cook Seasoned Chicken
I love cooking well-seasoned chicken in all its forms: baked, boiled, roasted, or grilled – especially whole chicken in an Airfryer! I’m always using a meat thermometer to be sure the meat is cooked. The chicken is safe to consume if the internal temperature reads 165°F.
Here are my favorite ways to cook juicy, tender poultry:
- Roasted – It’s best to bake whole chicken or should be roasted at 375°F in the oven for 20 minutes per pound. I cover it with foil for most of the time and then remove it until completely cooked. This way, you’ll get a delicious crispy skin.
- Baked – Seasoned and baked lemon garlic chicken legs can be brushed with olive oil and melted butter before seasoning. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes at 400°F for about 40 minutes.
- Grilled – Grilled chicken kabobs need 5-7 minutes per side.
If you’d prefer a non-spicy seasoning mix, omit the cayenne pepper and add a total of 2 1/2 tablespoons of sweet paprika. You can also use smoked paprika for a smoky-tasting chicken seasoning.
