1 6 pound Chicken or pieces- bone in
2 TBS butter melted
2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Paprika
2 Medium onions sliced 1/2 inch thick
3 large garlic cloves
Preheat the oven to 425*
Rinse the chicken and then dry off with paper towels.
Place the onions along the bottom of a large baking dish. Lay the chicken on top of the onions skin side up or if doing a whole chicken breast side up. Add the salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic to the melted butter. Pour or brush the butter mixture evenly on to the outside of the chicken. Place in the oven and roast till the skin is golden brown and the thermometer reads 180* in the breast. About 1 1/2 hours for a whole bird, and an hour for pieces. Remove the chicken from the oven and let sit for 10-15 min to let the juices settle.
