How long do I roast the whole chicken?

The general rule is to cook an unstuffed chicken at 350°F for approximately 22 minutes per pound.

How do I cut up the whole chicken into individual pieces?

Make sure to have a sharp chef knife for easier cutting. Place the whole chicken breast side up on a cutting board. Pull each leg out away from the the body and slice through the skin between the breast and the drumstick. Bend each leg back until the thigh bone pops out, and cut through the joint and skin to completely remove the leg portions. Divide the legs by turning the piece skin side down on the cutting board, and cut through the joints to separate the drumstick from the thigh. Turn the chicken on its side and pull the wing away from the body. Cut through the joint between the wing and the body to remove wing. Repeat with the other wing. Stand the chicken up on the neck end and cut downward through the rib and shoulder joints to separate the breast from the back. Lay the whole breast skin side down on your cutting board and split along the center bone using a chopping motion. Slice through the meat and skin to separate into 2 split breast pieces. To create equal sized pieces for more even cooking, you can also split each breast half in half to create 4 breast quarters by turning skin side up and cutting in half diagonally through the bone.

What is the giblet packet made of and is it safe to eat the chicken if I accidentally left the packet in the cavity when I cooked it?

The giblet packet is made of food grade paper, much like parchment paper, and is sealed by crimping. While it’s not advised to leave the giblet packet in the chicken while cooking, it is not harmful if left in there.
