How to Simply Bake Chicken or Turkey

Equipment

  • Glass baking dish 
  • Baster 

Ingredients 

  • Chicken or turkey (Choose from legs, thighs, drumsticks, wings, or skin-on breasts) 
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil or ghee
  • 1/4 bone broth (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 teaspoon sage powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt 

Optional Ingredients 

  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric 
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 

  • Place your desired cut of chicken or turkey in your baking dish, skin side up. 
  • Pour your apple cider vinegar and bone broth (and/or additional ingredients coconut aminos and maple syrup) over the poultry and add your coconut oil or ghee to the dish. 
  • In a seperate small bowl, mix together your spices and sea salt. 
  • Sprinkle your mixture evenly over the poultry. 
  • Place in the oven and bake on the middle rack for about 45-60 minutes, basting a couple of times throughout the cooking process. (If you do not have a baster, I suggest flipping each piece about 20 minutes after its been in and then again 20 minutes after that. I've done this many times while baster-less and it still comes out amazing!) 
  • Depending on how thick your cut of poultry is, it may take shorter or longer. Poultry should have an internal temperature of about 165, so if you have a meat thermometer handy, insert it into the thickest part of the meat, away from the bone to get an accurate reading.  

Notes 

You could easily make this a one-dish meal by adding some veggies to roast alongside the meat. I've tried cauliflower, broccoli, beets, carrots and Brussels sprouts before and have never been disappointed!
