So Father’s Day was June 17th. So for my Dad I made him a fabulous Jamie dinner (imagine that). Hey I think the best gifts you can give are homemade ones! I love to cook homemade so that’s what I made my pops!
First things first, Preheat your oven to 250 degrees
So I washed the bird and pulled the guts out and dabbed it with paper towels, then put it in a roasting pan or as I did in my le creuset. I started with breast side down to season it with Salt & Pepper & BBQ Rub from Kansas City and Liquid smoke
Then I took 3 pieces of bacon and cut them in half and then layed them across the top of the chicken. My thinking was as the chicken and bacon cooks the bacon grease would run down onto the breasts and keep them nice and moist, aaaaand my dad LOVES bacon!
So pop the chicken in the oven, covered for 5 hours…
So Normy got my dad some beer for Father’s Day and my dad was having himself a pretty good time with that beer Normy got him
Look at that Farmer’s Tan
Hey I know you!
So once you bake the chicken for another 20-30 minutes or until the thermometer is 185 degrees (that’s what I cooked mine too) pull it out and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Then start cutting that bird up….
