Roasted Chicken Breast Bone-In

Organic Chicken.  I was skeptical.  The cost was just hard to justify.  Hormone free, grain fed and raised roaming on farm land.  Even so, why pay $5 a pound when you can get the same thing for $2?  Right, that just makes smart sound economical sense.  Wow, oh wow was I ever wrong.

Organic Chicken is simply not the same as the chicken we get in the store these days.  And let me tell you the scary part…..since I can be classified as a senior citizen in some social circles  (and we will just leave the age thing at that) I remember when regular ole chicken looked, smelled and tasted like the organic chicken.   But somewhere in the breeding and mass producing of chicken (and other meats I am sure) we lost the natural texture and taste of our poultry.

The first thing I noticed as I was opening the package was that there was no pinkish reddish liquid in the package.  You know that slimy gross liquid that seeps out all over your hand.  Yuk!  And now that I think about it, when I was very young we never needed plastic bags hanging over the meat section like you have in the produce section of the store.  Then I noticed the skin was actually thin, flexible and squishy unlike  the tough skin on the chicken in the store  nowadays.   If you have ever purchased a large bag of chicken breast and taken the time to trim the skin from the chicken, you will notice that a fourth of the weight just has to be thick fat skin.

Once my chicken was cooked, the juices in the pan where minimal and clear.

The chicken was tender,  had good texture and tasted so flavorful.  I did not eat the skin, however, I would press the chicken on my fork on the skin to soak up the juices.  And let me tell you that was the most buttery flavorful bite of chicken I remember having.  And best part is no butter was a part of this dish.

This experiment with organic chicken  has really got me to thinking about what we are actually consuming.  And then I start thinking how that is effecting our health.  But that is a whole different topic that I will  want to research later.

Enough of that, let’s get to the fun part of preparing this chicken.

Roasted Bone In Chicken Breast – Organic Preferred

  • 4 Bone In with/Skin Chicken Breast
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Emeril’s Seasoning ( make your own & save $ @Season Mix Hacks)

Rub chicken with olive oil and lightly salt.  Shake a liberal amount of Emeril’s to cover chicken.  You may want to use your hand to rub in thoroughly .  Place chicken in 13X7 glass oven dish.

Cook 45 minutes at 375 degrees.

If you check with meat thermometer you will want 165-170 degrees.

Remove from oven and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

Then serve with your favorite side.

Let me know what you think about organic vs. regular store brand chicken.

    I have to agree, i often cringe at the prices but the flavor is amazing. I sometimes will catch it on sale and buy it up and freeze it.

    All we buy now is organic chicken, and I swear it just tastes better! It really isn’t much more expensive. That roasted chicken looks incredible!

    I hear you on the skin being that much part of the weight. I do take the skin off the whole chicken for a leaner version.

    This looks delicious. I never tried organic chicken before and that is because I noticed its a lot more expensive than regular.

    There is nothing like simple roasted chicken. I can’t even imagine what the taste of the organic chicken would be but I think it would be amazing. I will have to buy some and make a comparison for sure!
