My favorite go to Sunday recipe is this always perfect roasted chicken! So simple to make with just a few ingredients that you can readily find in your pantry!
What I typically do is I triple the spices then save it in a jar or ziplock bag for future use. <- Another time saver!
GATHER UP YOUR INGREDIENTS & MAKE THIS AWESOME ROASTED CHICKEN!
Starting with a whole roasting chicken rinse and dry the chicken with paper towels. Then I rub the whole chicken with ¼ c. olive oil.
On a small bowl, mix ½ T. sea salt, ¼ t. ground black pepper and ¼ t. paprika. Rub the dry mixture all over the chicken, as well as inside the cavity.
Stuff the chicken with 1 lemon cut in half (with seeds removed), ¼ c. of sliced onion, sprigs of thyme and a whole bulb of garlic (yes, a whole bulb – don’t worry it’s an aphrodisiac!). 😉
Cut the garlic crosswise (so the garlic flavor will slowly infuse on to the chicken as it cooks). Slice a few cloves of garlic and put some in between the skin of the chicken and the meat.
Roast the chicken in the oven for 30 minutes in 425 degree F. After 30 minutes, decrease the temperature to 350 degree F and cook until a thermometer inserted into the chicken breast registers 165 degree F, 30 to 45 minutes. Enjoy!
