Preheat oven to 375°. While oven is heating, rinse chicken. Remove any
visible pieces of fat, but leave the skin on. Sprinkle NORTHWOODS SEASONING
heavily on both sides of the chicken (up to 1 tsp. per piece). Place chicken,
skin side up, in a glass baking pan, roast at 375° for 15 minutes. Baste
the chicken with the pan juices, reduce the oven temperature to 325°,
and continue to bake another 40-50 minutes, depending on how large the
chicken pieces are. Baste the chicken with pan juices every 10-15 minutes
or so. After the final 40-50 minutes, turn the oven to broil (low broil
for gas stoves). Broil 4-5 minutes, until the skin is nicely browned.
To check for doneness, poke the breast with a knife; the juices will run
clear when the breast is fully cooked.
Noodles: Bring a large pot of water (4 quarts) to a boil. Start
the water when you turn the oven temperature down. When you turn the oven
up to broil the chicken for the final few minutes, add the egg noodles
and cook according to package directions. Usually egg noodles cook for
about 7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan to serving plates and
pour off all but 1 TB. of the drippings. Drain the noodles and toss into
the baking pan. Add 2 tsp. PASTA SPRINKLE and 2 TB. balsamic or red wine
vinegar. Stir well. Serve with bread and a salad, or a green vegetable
such as beans or broccoli. Sprinkle the pasta with grated parmesan cheese
