How to make it

  • ***Start this the night before you want to eat this :)***
  • In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices.
  • Remove giblets from chicken; clean the cavity well and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Rub the spice mixture into the chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly distributed and down deep into the skin.
  • *** Place in a ziplock plastic bag, seal and refrigerate overnight***
  • When ready to roast chicken, stuff cavity with onions, and place in a shallow baking pan.
  • ***Roast, uncovered, at 250° F for 5 hours***
  • After the first hour, baste the chicken occasionally (every half hour or so) with pan juices.
  • The pan juice will start to caramelize on the bottom of the pan and the chicken will turn golden brown.
  • If the chicken contains a pop-up thermometer, ignore it. Let chicken rest about 10 minutes before carving.

    Delicious! The meat fell off the bone and the skin was nice and crispy and a bit spicy. Done in five hours as you said! Thank you!
