Two in one. Yes, I made two dishes out of one bird. I roasted one half of the chicken and made a simple chicken soup out of the other half. It's home cooking and less people will be home to eat lunch.  I just thought it was a good idea to make the entree and the soup out of one chicken. Very satisfying  yet unrivaled in its' ambrosial simplicity.

1/2 chicken
1 heaping tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil or butter

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Wash the chicken well in running warm to hot water.  Mix the paprika, salt, and pepper. Rub the mixture on the chicken.  Coat with oil or butter.  Cook in the oven for 30 minutes. Lower the temperature to 375 degrees F and cook for another 15 to 20 minutes. Rest for 5 minutes before chopping. Serve on a plate.  Serve immediately.

See how the other half of the chicken was made into a simple chicken soup on the next post. 

*Seves 2 to 3
