I DID NOT follow the direction on the package. What I did was put mines in a baking dish. I seasoned mines a little with some Tony's Chachere and garlic powder. I wanted the chicken to be salty so we can eat it with steam green beans and corn on the cob.
Next I cut out the thread and drizzle with a little olive oil... Bake at 350 COVERED for 1 hour then UNCOVERED for 30 minutes... I also added a pat of butter on too so the skin can be nice and crispy!!
