Things you will need: a Hen, broiler pan and ingredients
Olive oil (Pompeian Extra Virgin), L.B. Jamison’s soup base chicken flavor ¼ cup, chicken broth (1 box), garlic pepper seasoning, tenderizer, onion (1 chopped) bell pepper (1 chopped) garlic (optional)
Preparation: Place all of the ingredients into the broiler pan except the olive oil, garlic pepper, and tenderizer. After carefully washing the hen inside until the water is clear, remove excess water.
Rub the olive oil onto the hen; both on the inside and on the skin, then sprinkle the tenderizer, and garlic pepper on the inside and skin of the hen. (The olive oil helps to absorb the flavor by holding the ingredients onto the skin.
After completing this process, place the hen on the broiler rack over the ingredients in the broiler pan and place it under the broiler until it start to slightly brown, then flip the hen over and allow the back to slightly brown. After the back is light brown, flip the hen again, and let it become light golden brown.
Remove the hen and place it on a baking dish or pan, and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Use a cooking syringe to drip the broth in the pan with the chicken that is baking, over it to keep it moist and tender. Lower the temperature to 300 degrees and cook for another 30 minutes. Check the chicken occasional to add more of the broth in the pan over the chicken.
Place the broth in the broiler pan into a pot and heat it to boiling. (This is to prevent contamination from the chicken that was on the broiler rack. (Use this broth to make the stuffing or dressing)
