Tips & Tricks:
  1. If you do not have a roasting pan, use a medium size disposable pan (I get mine at Costco).
  2. If you can’t find the McCormick Seasoning, use 1 tablespoon salt and ½ tablespoon paprika.
  3. When the chicken is done cooking, if you have time to let it sit for 10 minutes before cutting that’s ideal, if not, it will still be delicious!
