No-Salt Roasted Chicken Recipe: This Easy 4-Ingredient Baked Chicken Recipe Will Blow Your Mind

Why will this chicken recipe blow your mind? Because somehow the simple ingredients make magic in the oven and produce the most flavorful, juicy chicken. Serve this easy, four-ingredient roasted chicken recipe and you're sure to get recipe requests. The leftovers make a mean chicken salad

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 1/2 hours
Total Time: 1 hour and 40 minutes (approximately)

Servings: 4 to 5


  • 1 whole chicken (4 to 5 pounds)
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup white wine
  • chopped fresh herbs (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the chicken into a roasting pan. Squeeze the lemon all over the chicken, then put squeezed lemon halves into the cavity. Place the butter pieces all over the chicken. Sprinkle with black pepper. Put the fresh herbs into the chicken cavity, if using.
  2. Put the chicken into a preheated 350-degree F oven and cook about 15 minutes. Baste the chicken with the melted butter in the pan and continue to cook, basting every 15 minutes, until chicken has cooked 1 hour. 
  3. Add the white wine to the pan and continue to cook another 20 to 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Let the chicken rest about 10 minute before cutting. 

Note: If you cook a smaller chicken, be sure to monitor the internal temperature so you don't overcook it. The internal temperature should be 165 degrees F.
