Bachelor's Chicken

This recipe comes from a work associate, Philippe, who is a bachelor and happens to have a dysfunctional oven. Philippe is from France, but in this recipe his culinary skills leave much to be desired.
  • 1 chicken halved
  • Garlic butter for basting
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Place the chicken, skin side up, in a baking pan. Salt and pepper to taste. Preheat the oven to 375. Put the chicken in the oven. When the smoke alarm goes off, the chicken is done!

Hint: If your oven happens to work properly, baste the chicken every 10 minutes and turn over after 20 minutes of cooking. Bake for a total of 50 minutes before serving.
  • Yields: 2 to 4 servings if you're lucky.
  • Preparation Time: Depends on how good the battery is in your smoke alarm!
