I have always been afraid of chicken with bones. Not because I’m afraid of choking, but because I just find them intimidating. Boneless skinless chicken breast is what I usually buy, but they have been so expensive in the store recently. Last week, my grocery store had bone-in chicken breast on sale for $.99 a pound. Boneless skinless chicken breast was going for $4.99 a pound. I ended up with 4 huge chicken breasts with bones for $5. There are 7 people in my family, but this was plenty for all of us.
I want to emphasize how easy it is to roast chicken on the bone. It will also be the moistest, juiciest chicken you’ve ever eaten. Simply fantastic. Roast a couple of extra pieces and use them throughout the week for chicken salad, BBQ chicken sandwiches, chicken enchiladas, so many possibilities.
