This was such a great recipe!! I did a couple of minor changes to the seasoning though. First, I mixed 4 tbsp salt, and 1 tbsp of the other listed ingredients. Then I added 1 tbsp. of garlic powder and onion powder and thyme; as well as added an extra 1 tbsp. of paprika (I use smoked paprika and its amazing). Oh, I cooked 2- 5 1/2 lb. young chickens too...but this much seasoning gave me plenty to completely cover both sides of the chicken as well as under the breast skin and inside the cavity. I cut up leeks and shallots and put inside the cavity for extra flavor. I put parchment paper in the bottom of the pan and sprayed it with Olive Oil Pam. I cooked the chicken covered,breast side down, and flipped it over and uncovered it for the last 20 minutes so the skin would be crispy. The cook time was about 1 hr 50 minutes for 2- 5 1/2 lb chickens. The flavor was amazing and everyone loved it, so this will be a regular recipe around here.
