Minden’s Chicken


    • 1 Costco organic chicken, cut up into pieces
    • 1 Tablespoon rosemary chopped fine
  • 1 Tablespoon smoked Paprika
  • 1.5  teaspoons salt
  • 2-3 Tablespoons of olive oil (you can use part butter too)


  • If you have time, heat the above marinade ingredients (oil, paprika, rosemary, and salt) in a saucepan for a few minutes to blend and melt salt.  Don’t worry if you don’t have time to heat the ingredients; you can just mix them.
  • If you have time, put chicken pieces in a Ziploc bag with the sauce to marinate in the fridge for several hours/overnight.  Don’t worry if you don’t have time to marinade.
  • Coat a cookie sheet or broiling pan with aluminum foil and lay the chicken pieces out. (If cookie sheet doesn’t have sides, folds the foil up  1/2 an inch at the edges to retain juices.) Better not to bake in a deep pan so the skin gets crisper.
  • Baste with the above sauce.  (If you used your first batch of sauce as a marinade in the Ziploc, you’ll need to make a second batch to baste with, which gives it more flavor.)
  • Bake chicken for about 1 hour at 375 degrees, turning and basting with sauce a few times while cooking.
  • Also barbeques well.  Baste a few times while cooking.
  • Easy to serve with roasted potatoes, onions, carrots, etc. (I like to roast in avocado oil since it’s a “high heat” oil.)
