Bake a whole chicken
Place a whole chicken in a pan and pour melted butter over it.
Bake the chicken
Bake the chicken uncovered at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour.
Use a microwave
Use a combination of pan-frying and roasting. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium high heat until it shimmers. Place drumsticks and breasts in the skillet skin side down. Cook for 5 minutes, then turn the meat over. Cook for another five minutes, and then place the skillet in the oven for 10 minutes.
Place the chicken in a broiler
Try broiling your chicken. Place chicken thighs in a greased baking pan. Coat with melted butter, and cook in a preheated broiler for 20 minutes, until the juices run clear, turning the chicken once occasionally and basting it with butter and its own juices.
Use a browning dish
Place separated chicken pieces in a microwave browning dish as another option. Add butter or oil to the preheated dish. Follow the dish manufacturer's instructions and brown the pieces until they are crisp. Now enjoy crispy chicken that will make you want to lick your fingers.
