Mmmm so good! I've cooked this recipe TO SERVE 4 PEOPLE a few times now, and have made a few adjustments to suit our needs/ tastes: 1)omit paprika and cayenne pepper as they can burn- there's still enough spice with the white and black 2)a 3.5 lb chicken only needs 1.25 tsp salt 3)marinate- as mentioned in other reviews- for at least 5 hours- it does make a huge difference :) 4)use a completely defrosted chicken 5) dice and saute large onion with olive oil and minced garlic clove, and let cool before stuffing into cavity (otherwise onion may not cook through and sauteing gives a better flavour) 6) add 2 cups of water to the bottom of the roasting pan- prevents splattering/ burning/ smoking and may need some replenishing every hour or so 7)my oven just doesn't do low temps well so roast for 2.5 hours at 150 degreeC 8) to make onion gravy: pour juices into small sauce pan and about half of the onions from the chicken- dissolve 1 tsp-1tblsp flour/cornstarch in water and add- bring to boil and then simmer for about a minute or less- you may need to add a bit of water/ salt/ pepper Thanks Sue Rogers for this great recipe!!!
