Melt In Your Mouth Chicken

fall off the bone tender

Manny’s Steakhouse in Minneapolis is famously known for serving steaks so tender you can cut them with a spoon. Now that’s tender! I recently took a trip to Florida for a three-day recipe writing get away with my friend Laurie, one of my guest contributors in my book. She taught me to make a roasted chicken so tender; it puts Manny’s steaks to shame.

My favorite part about writing a global cookbook that includes an eclectic group of friends from nine different countries, is the opportunity to learn the tips, tricks and kitchen secrets each person brings to the table. It has been a culinary journey far better than anything I could have ever imagined and yet there is always more to discover. This chicken recipe tops the list of my favorites when it comes to a mouth watering fall-off-the-bone chicken like nothing I’ve made before. Give this a try and watch for all of Laurie’s incredible recipes featured in my book.

  3. Place chicken in a small roasting pan or glass baking pan.

Recipe Notes

Recipe found on
-The chicken will be cooked when the thermometer reaches 160 degrees, however, allowing it to slow roast longer creates a more tender chicken.
-Be sure to spoon the liquid from the pan over the meat every few hours to keep the meat moist while roasting.
