Crunchy Chicken with Oven-Roasted Broccoli
2 1/2-to-3-pound whole chicken
NOTE: you can save time by using boneless, skinless chicken breast
halves but using the whole chicken and quartering and skinning yourself
can save some money. But be sure you don't mind eating off of bones if
you use the whole chicken.

1/4 teaspoon each salt and black pepper
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Remove giblets and neck and
discard. Quarter chicken and remove and discard skin.

breasts, just rinse and pat dry.)
