BAKE the whole chicken in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. You can check if the chicken is done by checking it's temperature. The meter should read at least 71 degrees Celsius, or 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

Don't eat the chicken before it's core has reached this temperature. BASTE the chicken every 25 minutes, scoop the hot butter over the chicken. Sidenote: baking time varies depending on the chicken, some chickens are fattier than others.

In any case, be sure to cook it well to prevent it from being raw. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
