Who wants to come home from a hard day of work and have to decide
what to cook and then spend 2 hours cooking? No one does. I have
the perfect solution to this problem. I have used prepared ingredients
to make a great dish that even the kids will love.
- 1 whole fryer chicken
- 1 (8-ounce) bottle pesto
- 1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
- 1 pound linguini
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350°F. Shake bottle of pesto well or mix with
a spoon. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Rub pesto over the
entire chicken and under the skin. Put any remaining pesto into
the cavity of the chicken. Bake covered for 3040 minutes or
until wing pulls freely from the breast. Raise the oven temperature
to 450°F and cook for 15 minutes more or until the skin is golden
brown. Cut chicken into serving pieces and serve over linguini with
your favorite spaghetti sauce.
NOTE: This recipe can be prepared
with chicken pieces; however, a whole chicken will remain moister
than pieces during the cooking process.
