    Y’all can say that just salt is boring, but it is so good. Especially when you’re having a long day and just want something quick and easy! Or just chicken. I loved it, would definitely do it again!🤤

    Seriously? Did this recipe change into just simple chicken cooking instructions? Was there a recipe here at one point? I can cook a nice chicken, so I thought I'd see how I could improve it ..... but this is just salt? What the eff? Wish i could assign a zero star....

    this is not a true recipe! It is simply very basic instructions on how to cook a juicy chicken. in this case the better quality fresh chicken you start with I guess the better it will taste when it's cooked.

    This chicken was super moist, and perfectly done with the time stated in the recipe. I might try it with different seasonings, but loved how simple and quick this technique is!

    What a treat. We did add some Italian seasoning to the chicken for some additional flavor. We were pleasantly surprised on how well this turned out. Very good meal!

    well my brolier is under the oven so when i turned the oven to 250 after broiling in the broiler,not the OVEN, i ended up turning up the temp to 300 after the 20 minutes because it still was not done -maybe if my oven had the broiler in it, the temp would have been higher during the broiling process . put in a thermometer to make sure it was done . it took a good 45 minutes in oven a ft er broiling but at a higher temp

    Honestly, this is how I season my birds ALL THE TIME, because this is all they need- using Pink Himalayan salt ONLY. However, my chicken wasn't deboned so I did leave it in a bit longer so that the breasts were cooked completely through . Next time I will cut the breasts in half or thirds to speed up the cooking process. But the flavor was SPOT ON, and I made gravy from the drippings. 😉

    This was good, but can't say it was the best chicken I've ever cooked. It was juicy and worth the time.

    My (very difficult to please) son loved it. Very simple recipe, though it got done at about 15 minutes at 250*

    Excellent. I didn't debone it even. The broiling and turning kept setting off my smoke alarm, but really great recipe. :)

    Didn't really find it to be the best. For me the low temp (after broiling) and short time was not enough to cook through. I may try again with a thermometer.

    Why do we have to label 'any' thing as 'effing'? Best Chicken Ever....adding a little more spice to the recipe, instead of the name.... I liked the chicken!
