I often like recipes that are quick to do so I can spend my time otherwise and still enjoy a good meal.
Recently I ran across a recipe in my Living Cookbook that I've had for a long time but never tried. Roast chicken in a bag. It was so easy! And it was really moist and beautiful. (*Mine cooked up perfectly in an hour.)


[url]Brown Bag Chicken

1 3- to 3 1/2-pound chicken
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 onion, cut in half
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 Tbs ground hot Hungarian paprika

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Rinse the chicken, pat dry, and remove any excess fat. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper to taste inside and out. Place the onion and rosemary inside the cavity and rub the outside of the chicken with the paprika.

Lay a standard-size brown paper grocery bag on its side and place the chicken inside, tying the top of the bag closed with kitchen string. Place the bagged chicken on a rimmed baking sheet in the lower third of the oven, so you have plenty of room at the top. Cook for 1 1/2 hours*, remove the chicken from the oven, and carefully open the bag to release the steam. Check for doneness by inserting an internal thermometer in the thickest part of the thigh; it should read about 165°F and the juices should run clear when the thigh is pierced with the tip of a small knife. Let rest for about 10 minutes before carving. Slice the breasts and cut the wings, legs, and thighs into pieces. Serve warm.

What was the skin like? Soggy, crispy?

Actually, I was surprised that the skin was nicely darkened and, while not exactly crispy, it was not soft either; it was very nice.
