K-Five Homestead & Farm Chicken Recipe

Farm Fresh Roasted Chicken Recipe

Who doesn’t love a good roasted chicken recipe?! By using a farm fresh chicken, you help your chicken soak up every little bit of flavor you incorporate into the roasting pan. And when I say the flavor is PHENOMENAL, I am not exaggerating! It is super easy to make, but tastes like you slaved away in the kitchen. Give it a try, you won’t regret it!

Farm Fresh Roasted Chicken

1 4-5 lb. farm fresh whole chicken

1 gallon of water
1 cup of salt
1/2 cup of Raw unpasteurized Honey
1 Tablespoon of dried Bay leaves
1 Tablespoon of dried Sage
1 Tablespoon of dried Rosemary
1 Tablespoon of dried Thyme

Basting juice:
3 cups of homemade or store bought Chicken broth
1.5 teaspoons dried Sage
1.5 teaspoons dried Rosemary
1.5 teaspoons dried Bay leaves

Olive oil
Salt & Pepper
Root vegetables – we used Zucchini & Yellow Crookneck Squash
1/2 onion
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 lemon

Place whole chicken in a covered container with brining recipe for 12-18 hours in the refrigerator. When removing the chicken after brining, you can choose to rinse the chicken off – I don’t, and haven’t noticed an issue with saltiness.

Chop up your root vegetables in chunks and lay in the bottom of the roasting pan. Lay the chicken breast side down and coat both sides with olive oil and salt and pepper. Place the onion, garlic and lemon into the cavity of the chicken. Mix up the basting juice and pour over the chicken and into the pan.

Put the chicken UNCOVERED into the oven at 275*F degrees for 30 minutes. Baste with juice, and set timer for 30 more minutes. Go ahead and baste again, check temp – should be around 100-110* already, set timer for 20 minutes. Flip chicken (if you want both sides skin to be crispy), baste and set timer for 10 minutes. Chicken should now be roughly 160ish* degrees. Pull chicken out and cover to rest for 20 minutes – this is IMPORTANT! You want the juices to come to rest in the meat – you’ll thank me, I promise! I always check the chicken temp before cutting into, it needs to be at minimum 165*, and truthfully no more than that, as it will dry the meat out and make it tough.


I will link a PDF of the recipe so you can download and print for your recipe book. If you have made this, leave me a comment below and tell me what you and your family thought! And don’t forget to share with your family and friends, you know they will want an amazing roasted chicken recipe too!

Oven Roasted Corn

Corn on the cob

Have you ever wanted to make corn on the cob, but you already had your stove top full of other pans going? Or maybe you don’t want to pull out your large pot to wash afterwards? Give oven roasted corn a try! It it a tad bit chewier than boiled corn on the cob, but it has a delicious sweetness to it that you won’t get when boiled!


  • Corn on the cob
  • Butter/margarine
  • Salt (I prefer Himalayan)
  • Pepper
  • Aluminum foil

Turn the oven on 375 F, and place each ear of corn on a piece on aluminum foil. I like to slather butter on the corn and sprinkle salt and pepper liberally over each ear. Wrap the foil ends in first and roll the foil up.

Place aluminum covered corn on the cob directly on the oven rack for 30 minutes. (I place a cookie sheet underneath to catch any escaping butter)

Allow the ears to cool a few minutes before opening to eat. Enjoy!

What’s in YOUR eggs?!

If you purchase your eggs from K-Five Homestead & Farm, you will know EXACTLY what is in YOUR eggs!

Our chickens are pasture raised. They eat bugs. They eat grass. They eat left-overs, including fruits, vegetables, and protein. They eat egg shells for additional calcium. They eat natural grit to enable their food to be pulverized and allow the chickens to absorb the nutrients they need.

Our chickens are organic. They do not receive ANY vaccinations. They do not receive ANY antibiotics. They do not receive ANY chemicals.

Not only are our chickens, just plain, everyday natural chickens – so are your eggs.

The eggs that our chickens lay are chemical free, antibiotic free, vaccine free, farm fresh, and organic.

You can taste the difference between an egg from K-Five Homestead & Farm vs store bought – we guarantee it.
