Hi guys!

I officially can not cook! Last time I tried this


Whole Roast Chicken Recipe - Laura Vitale - Laura in the Kitchen Episode 302 - YouTube

It came out super dry & chewy.

What can I do with some full chicken? Gotta be easy please & thanks!

Cut out the back bone with poultry shears...
then lay the chicken FLAT over the bone and vegetables to roast.

Buy some Stove top stuffing. Make it according to directions. Stuff it into the turkey. Bake at 325 for about 45 minutes, basting with butter. Test for doneness with a thermometer. Let it rest on a platter and make some gravy from the drippings.
It will not be dry unless you overcook it.
In future, if you are challenged in the kitchen, get a pre cooked chicken and a jar of gravy from the grocery store, make the Stove top and you're done.

I'd advise not stuffing the chicken. Make the stuffing on the side as per box directions. Cook the chicken this way. But take it out when the temperature reaches 170 degrees, then let rest.

Super easy.

Ironically, I have two in the convection oven right this second, stuffed with some fresh thyme.

Did you COVER the chicken? When I bake/roast meat I always cover it and cook it longer than most people. I would put in a roaster with a cover, potatoes and stuff around it with 2" of water or chicken stock. Stuffed or not. I would never put a chicken in at 425, way too hot, and it was too short of time. I would do 350 for 3 hours. Never open the oven, never take the lid off until at least 2 hours. That way it is always juicy and ready to fall apart done and tender.
