Flora’s Easy Roast Chicken

My sister is sharing another one of her favorite chicken recipes today. I love how simple this one is. 

We eat a lot of chicken at our house. Not only is it quick and healthy, but it’s pretty affordable too. So, whenever I see whole chickens go on sale, I make sure and buy a few extra for the freezer.

The recipe I am sharing today is one of my favorite ways to roast a whole chicken. If you’ve roasted chicken before, you’ll probably noticed this method is a bit different than most. There is not butter or oil used to rub on the chicken, just lots of flavorful spices.

At first glance, this might look more like the spice list for a Christmas cookie, but honestly, it tastes delicious and savory.  The end result is a very moist, flavorful, and delicious Roast Chicken.

It is necessary to let the chicken sit overnight in the refrigerator once you rub it with the spices, so plan accordingly.

Flora is Lynn’s sister and like Lynn she loves to cook. She considers herself a serious home cook; who just happens to cook everything gluten-free. She is always trying to find fresh, flavorful meals to feed her family.

  3. Might be a silly question – but why do you roast it breast down? I have always done it the other way and am curious as to what the benefits are by doing it this way.

    The recipe looks yummy and I have put it on my menu to try this weekend. Thanks.

  4. My husband is not a fan of chicken, but this recipe sounded intriguing so I decided to make. I just couldn’t imagine those kind of spices smothered all over a chicken. When he arrived home that night he went on & on about how good the kitchen smelled. But the best part…..he loved the chicken, said it was absolutely delicious. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
