Take your roasting pan and coat lightly with olive oil or spray with non-stick cooking spray. take the chicken from the marinade if you have use one, and place the chicken skin side up in the roasting pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper as well as any of the other herbs you would like to use. If you are using a marinade, you will not need to season the chicken so much.

Cooking the Chicken
Place the chicken in the oven and bake for 50 minutes. Do not conceal the chicken. To check whether it is finish or not, use a meat thermometer to ascertain the temperature. If you are preparing chicken breasts, the thermometer should read 170ºF, and for thighs, it should read 180ºF.
