  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Rinse chicken thoroughly inside and out under cold running water and remove all fat. Pat dry with paper towels.

First: I had no smoking ANY time I've made this, and I usually cook the chicken 20 min on 500, 20 min on 475, and 20 min on 425. Second: GREAT spice. Double it and rub it UNDER the skin (then ge...

It was OK. The spices were good, but since I don't eat the skin, I didn't taste them very much. The chicken wasn't finished by the end of cooking time (still pinkish inside), although the skin w...

I was surprised this was as good as it was because of the combination of spices, but it was truly yummy. Like others suggested, I doubled the olive oil and the spices for a 4.5 lb. bird. I als...

Great spices. I cooked this in an oven bag and added a bit of water to the bag to make a great gravy with the juices and the flour you have to add to the bag (so it won't burst) and it turned o...

For those who said it was not flavorful bc you don't eat the skin, I highly recommend marinating it for 24 hours in your refrigerator. You can even do as you would a turkey, raise the skin and ...

Good flavor, but nothing to write home about. Due to previous comments about the high cooking temperature causing smoke in their kitchens, I reduced the temp. to 350 and baked it until the chick...

This recipe was outstanding!! The chicken was so flavorful. My whole family enjoyed the tasty meal. I used a six pound chicken, so I doubled the spices. I put an onion and celery leaves in the c...

Very good! I didn't measure the spices, just poured each, adding garlic powder, into a bowl and then rubbed them onto the chicken. The timing was perfect for a 3.5 pound chicken. I also added a ...

My house smelled incredible tonight. I just knew this chicken was going to be good. I love this high heat blast at the beginning to ensure a rich, golden skin, but I was a little more laid back...
