Whole chicken recipes

Chickens are delicious and have been enjoyed by humans for centuries. They originated from jungle fowl, some of which still exist in the jungles of Asia and took on other forms as humans learned to domesticate them. Chickens are valued for their eggs and their meal which is delicious as well as contain lower fat than other meat. Cooking the whole chicken is simpler than you think. Here are two chicken recipe ideas.
