27. Alton Brown is my hero
brine it
stuff it with: sliced onion, apple, cinnamon stick, clove, sage, thyme, and parsely - all mixed with some water and microwaved a couple minutes
olive oil on the skin
bake on 500 degrees for 20 minutes to get the skin nice and brown, THEN cover with foil, and lower the oven temp to 325 to finish cooking
