  2. Rinse the chicken under cold water and pat it dry with paper towels. Season the chicken all over with salt and pepper.

  6. Place the chicken back into the skillet and spoon some of the sauce over the top of it. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven.
  7. Roast the chicken for 35-45 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
  8. Remove the skillet from the oven and let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serve the chicken with the pan sauce spooned over the top. Enjoy!
