  1. Photo by: Crisco® Heat oven to 400°F. Spray a shallow roasting pan with rack with no-stick cooking spray.

  2. Mix oil, oregano and garlic. Brush mixture over entire chicken. Season chicken liberally with salt and pepper. Place in prepared pan, breast side down; let stand 30 minutes. Turn chicken breast side up.
