Easy Whole Chicken Recipes

Sharing is caring!

Do you have a few whole chickens that you need to use up? Get excited because these Easy Whole Chicken Recipes are amazing! I like to make whole chickens or whole fryer chickens because they can feed the whole family.

Keep in mind a fryer chicken is usually a hen, which means it is smaller than a normal sized chicken. Making whole chickens can be fun because there are so many ways to do it! Check out these easy whole chicken recipes.
