Oh - my - gawd - it was awesome!
Set the oven on convection at 325.
Massaged the chicken with butter, and rubbed with Penzey's Florida Seasoned Pepper.
Placed in a roasting pan with foil rings to hold it off the bottom of the pan, roasted for 1 hour. GBD! The meat is so tender, it's falling off the bone; and juicy, too; even the breast meat isn't dried out.
So - in answer to my own question - heck, yes, this is the way I"m going w/ the Thanksgiving turkey!
