Baked Chicken

If chicken is on the menu tonight, there's no better way to prepare it than in the oven. Baking chicken allows for maximum versatility. Family-pleasing chicken casseroles, bubbly from the oven, are excellent all-in-one weeknight meals. Oven-fried chicken delivers a healthier crispy coating without the hassle of a deep-fat fryer. And if you thought the only way to get fall-off-the-bone tender barbecue was from a grill, think again. When cooked using our oven-barbecue method, you'll get tender, saucy chicken every time. A whole roasted chicken is simple and succulent, and feeds the whole family with leftovers to spare. Our roasting guide and video tutorials will give you winning results every time and teach you how to accomplish even seemingly difficult tasks, such as cutting up a whole chicken. If you don't feel like the hassle -- or the mess -- take on one of our easy one-dish chicken dinners. Never eat another dry, flavorless chicken breast again when you use our tips for how to bake chicken. Use these methods for any baked chicken dish for flavorful, juicy chicken.
