I would like to roast 3 - 5# chickens in 18 qt nesco. How long should I roast them for?

Preheat the oven to 350, 20-25 minutes per pound, but use a thermometer. It takes just a few minutes longer to do 3 chickens than it does to do one, and depends on how cold and how fat the birds are.

Put some butter and a cut up lemon or some celery stalks inside each. Season as desired. Bake in the preheated oven, to a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees F . Remove from heat, and baste with melted butter and drippings. For juiciest results, cover with aluminum foil, and allow to rest about 30 minutes before serving.

If this saves you time., trouble, or money, please make a donation to support this site. Thanks.

A thermometer in one of the birds, I meant.
