Q:

How long should I bake a 4-pound chicken for?

A:

It takes approximately 1 1/4 to 1 3/4 hours to bake a 4-pound chicken at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. The chicken is done when a cooking thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the bird's leg away from the bone reads 165 degrees.

Ensure that the chicken bakes evenly by letting the bird stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before putting it into the preheated oven. After baking the chicken, it needs to be removed from the oven and set to rest for 15 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute themselves into the meat, making it as moist and juicy as possible.

At this temperature, the general guideline is to bake a chicken 20 minutes for each pound, plus an additional 15 minutes.

    A:

    The length of time it takes to bake a chicken depends on the temperature of the oven as well as the size of the chicken being used. If baked at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, a whole chicken that weighs 2 1/2 to 3 pounds should be cooked for one hour to one hour and 15 minutes. Fifteen minutes should be added to the cooking time for every half-pound.
