This came out fantastic! I did make some changes, though. As suggested by another reviewer, I rubbed the chicken with the "Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style" spices, minus the thyme, since my husband won't eat that, and added more garlic. I also added mini red potatoes, sweet potatoes, parsnip, baby carrots, and more onion, all chopped into large slices. I added water and chicken soup mix (I did not have chicken broth) and put it in an aluminum pan covered with silver foil on 325 for 2 hours, and then on 375 for about 20 minutes to make it crispy. Yum!
This was a great basic roasted chicken recipe. I changed it a bit to add more flavor. I used chicken broth instead of water and I put onions inside the chicken cavity. I also added a couple tablespoons of butter to the broth and another 1/2 tablespoon inside the chicken. Try rubbing chicken with some olive oil and minced garlic and sprinkling with rosemary for more flavor.
I oiled the chicken first and added thyme and rosemary, also used chicken stock instead of water and made gravy from leftover juices -- very flavorful, very moist.
Wow, this was SO good! My family loved this, and I was told it was the best meal I'd ever made. I did make three minor changes from the basic recipe. I used chicken stock instead of water (which I highly recommend), and I covered the chicken with the spice mixture from "Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style" instead of just using salt and pepper. I also added mushrooms, because my family loves mushrooms.
This is a wonderful recipe that I will absolutely be making over and over again. Thank you!
Made this 11/6 - Used potatoes, carrots, asparagus, chicken legs. Cooked @ 375 for about 40 minutes coverd. Then backed another 20 minutes @ 450 uncovered to crisp the chicken. Came out really good! :)
I am giving this 5 stars because of it's simple goodness. This isn't a "fancy" meal, but it is oh so good. It was great to watch my family go back for seconds. Hubby requested that we have it every week! I would suggest seasoning vegetables well and using chicken broth in place of water. I also pricked the whole potatoes with a knife to allow flavors to flow through.
This was a big hit with my husband and my 2 year old! I started by rubbing the inside & out of the skin with butter and then with a basting brush I painted on a nice coat of extra virgin olive oil. I used diced red potatoes, half a bag of peeled baby carrots, half of a yellow onion (fine diced), and about a cup of chopped celery. I added only about a cup of water, since I wanted more of the chicken juices to cook into the vegetables. Cooked my 4lb bird on 350 for 2 hours covered, basting about every 30 minutes, then cooked uncovered at 400 for another hour. DELICIOUS. ROSEMARY is a must with this recipe, the taste is absolutely devine. I also used garlic salt, onion salt, thyme, basil, and fresh ground pepper...mmmm! We will definitely be making this a regular meal in our home!
I used chicken broth instead of the water, and it still lacks something. Otherwise, it makes such an easy, healthy dish.
