After reading everyone's reviews I was really excited about trying this. Most people said that it was great; however, there were a few who said it wasn't. I was hoping to get rostisserie chicken that tasted like Boston Market's Chicken.
The chicken was good. However, I think the disconnect comes in because there are some people who know how to roast a chicken and others who have never done it before. So here's my take...if you have roasted a chicken before and you like your roasted chicken, this chicken doesn't taste much different. I make a roasted chicken every Christmas using only pepper, seasoned salt, green peppers and onions, and it is great. Therefore, this recipe was good, but it didn't taste like anything that I hadn't already done before with less spices. On the other hand, if you have never roasted a whole chicken, then this the recipe for you. By the way, I gave my mom some of the rub to put on salmon, and she said that it was very good. With that being said, she pointed out that her blood preesure rose after eating it because it had so much salt in it. I would definitely recommend halfing the salt. (She measured her pressure before and after the meal because her doctors have been concerned with her pressure lately). A few other tips, you should definitely work olive oil over the chicken with your hands before using the rub. Lastly, baste this chicken several times throughout the process.
