Sticky Chicken

Sticky Chicken

2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 whole roasting chicken, about 3 pounds
1 cup chopped onions

Combine all spices (first 8 ingredients) in small bowl. Rinse chicken, inside and out. Drain well. Rub spice mixture over skin and the inside of chicken. Place in a resealable plastic bag, seal and refrigerate overnight. When ready to roast, stuff cavity with onions. Place chicken breast side down in roasting pan. Roast uncovered at 250ºF (that’s not a typo…it’s really 250º! Anything over 225º is safe as long as the chicken reaches an internal temperature of at least 155º, which this does, and more) for about 5 hours. Baste occasionally with pan juices or until pan juices start to caramelize on bottom of pan and
chicken is golden brown.
