I am not often pleased with chicken cooked in the oven, either whole, spatchcocked or in pieces.
As a result, I'm always trying new recipes. I think I found one. It's the Cook's Country recipe for "CAST IRON BAKED CHICKEN" and it came out great.
I cut up a 4 pound chicken, dusted it with a rub that's part of the recipe. Heated a CI skillet in the oven, added the chicken for 15 minutes, flipped the chicken and did another 15 minutes. Rest ten minutes and serve.
What makes this especially gratifying is that SO loved it too.
