This ultra tender, 5-ingredient, and amazingly easy baked whole chicken has a dark secret: butter. Cooked into the chicken, butter provides moisture and flavor. You won’t ever cook chicken any other way again.

This tender baked whole chicken contains just five ingredients: chicken (shocker, right?), butter, and a few simple seasonings. With good pastured poultry, however, you don’t need much added flavoring–your bird should have enough to stand by itself. And the secret ingredient, butter? That helps too. Half a stick in the cavity of the bird will melt down during cooking and dissolve into the meat.
Serve this baked whole chicken sliced up in its juices for the ultimate moisture!
