Chicken In A Bag

Take 1 whole chicken. Clean out and rinse.
Take 1 medium large paper bag ( large enough for the chicken with room to spare.)
Coat the chicken all over with seasoning salt.
Place in bag and use a twist tie to close, making the bag kind of puffy above the chicken.
Place on baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 2 hours.
Remove from bag and serve.


(Editor’s note – We had a question from a reader regarding how the bag keeps from burning:  “I like the concept of the chicken in a bag.  My question is how do you prevent the bag from burning up in oven since it is a paper bag?”

I found the following at  Ignition Temperature of Paper – HyperTextBookFacts “Ignition temperature is the temperature at which something catches fire and burns on its own. The ignition temperature of paper is 451 degrees Fahrenheit, or 233 degrees Celsius.”

Thank you for asking.  There were several readers who were not absolutely sure about the ‘flash point’ of paper.)
