Cast iron skillet or a baking sheet
Brown paper bag
cut into halves or quarters
Rosemary or any other seasoning your family likes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204 Celsius).
Rinse your chicken under cold water.
Pat the chicken dry, I use a paper towel and then discard it.
Remove excess fat, if there is any.
Sprinkle the whole chicken, inside and out with salt and pepper.
Place the onion halves inside the chicken.
Add the butter and any other spice you are using to the inside of the chicken.
Sprinkle paprika all over the whole chicken. You can pat it to stay but not necessary.
Place the whole chicken into a brown paper bag.
Place the bagged chicken into the cast iron skillet or onto the baking sheet.
Tie or fold the bag closed, this will help keep in moisture.
Bake for 1h 30' to 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 Celsius) to be sure the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
Serve warm and Enjoy!
Be sure that the paper bag is not touching the inside of the oven or the heating element as it will catch on fire.
