my all time favorite roasted chicken recipe & how to make a hot toddy


* 2-3 lbs split chicken breast
* 1 tsp olive oil
* 1 tsp kosher salt
* 1 tsp garlic or onion powder
* 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (or paprika, if you prefer)


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
2. Wash the chicken breast and pat dry with a paper towel
3. Use your hands (or a brush) to coat the skin lightly with olive oil
4. Season (on both sides) with the kosher salt, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper
5. Roast on a rack or tin broiler pan for 1 hour
6. Let sit 10 minutes and serve!

***this is also great with some root vegetables thrown in (rainbow carrots, fingerling potatoes, and parsnips)

bonus recipe:  how to make a hot toddy
