Hi everyone we're making up some spiced chicken recipes there are so many ways to roast a chicken but this method produces an incredibly flavorful and juicy bird if you're looking for something special for the weekend yet have to give this a try so let's get started let's begin by rinsing the chicken and patting it dry I always allow my chicken to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before I begin working with it now let's make the rub by combining the spices beginning with the garlic powder followed by the dried thyme pepper eita some cayenne pepper for a little bit of extra kick if you don't want it too spicy you can simply cut back a little on it kosher salt and some black pepper now remember I'm a pepper lover so I'm gonna put Lots in but it's totally your call now we're going to stir until everything is nicely combined and of course if you want to add some extra spices by all means go ahead next what I'm gonna do is drizzle some olive oil over top of the chicken you can substitute butter but as with many meats I prefer olive oil then I'm going to sprinkle the rub mixture over the top and rub it all over the chicken into every little nook and cranny and we're going to flip the chicken over and repeat this for the other side until it looks just about like this really nicely coated with the spices now we're going to stop the cavity with some sliced lemon some sliced onions one of my favorites some rosemary Springs now we'll tie the legs together with some cooking string this will help it big evenly and help keep everything inside the cavity also remember to tuck the wings under to avoid burning while roasting next place the chopped potatoes which have been cut into bite-sized bits into your preferred baking dish and if you want you can add sweet potatoes or any vegetable of your choice then season with some salt and pepper drizzle some olive oil over the top and mix until the potatoes are well coated [Music] next we'll push the potatoes to the side basically making a well in the center and place the chicken in breast side up now we're going to put the chicken into a 375 degree preheated oven for an hour and a half every time we do a chicken this is the way we do it and it comes so perfect and after an hour and a half we're going to remove the chicken and let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes before we start carving now that the chicken is rested we're going to carve it and look at that it's tender juicy and just beautiful and believe me this tastes every bit as good as it looks for more information on this recipe visit our website and remember you can always share your recipe with us until next time have a wonderful day and enjoy.
