Chef Ed's Baked Chicken

Many of you may not know that Jenny was a restaurant inspector for 9 years! This recipe comes from Chef Ed of Keeneland Racetrack in Lexington, KY. Chef Ed also prepared meals for Queen Elizabeth when she would visit.


  • 1 Peaceful Pastures Whole Chicken (If possible, brine chicken chicken first)
  • 1/2 small onion, cut in half
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 carrot, broken into pieces
  • 1/2 stalk celery, broken in half
  • Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sage (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place all ingredients inside the chicken cavity (remove neck from inside the cavity and save for stock making) and place chicken breast side DOWN in oven safe pan. Rub the skin with olive oil and place chicken in hot oven. Drop the oven temperature to 275 degrees and roast until internal temperature at the thickest part of the meat is 160 degrees (use a chef’s thermometer—not the kind you put in the meat and leave it.) Check temperature after 2 hours, then every 20-30 minutes until done.
