Ingredients

How to make it

  • Pre heat oven to 400 degrees
  • Make a rub by combining the 5 spices. Season Chicken pieces with rub on all sides and under the skin. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes to 4 hours.
  • Insert some Garlic under skin of each Chicken piece. Throw remaining Garlic in with the Veggies.
  • In a Large Dutch Oven or Covered Baking Dish, toss Potatoes, Onion, Garlic Cloves, Carrots, and Celery with enough of the rub mixture to coat well.
  • Veggies should come up about half way in the pot. Add a few more of each if they don't.
  • Arrainge Chicken on top of vegetables cover and cook 15 minutes at 400 degrees. Lower heat to 325 and cook 45 mins longer. Remove cover during the last 15 minutes for a crispier skin. The meat should be very moist and fall of the bone.
  • When serving, spoon some of the bottom juice over the Veggies.
  • Serve with Pita or Crusty Bread. to soak up juices.

    Jim, I made your recipe last night and this is delicious, flavorful comfort food at its best. Plus, it's so darn easy to put together....what could be better than that?

    I let my chicken (I used all thighs) sit in the rub for 4 hours and then let it cook with the lid off the Dutch oven for the last 30 minutes or so to allow the chicken to brown up. I love the spice rub on the chicken and veggies - and the chicken is so moist and juicy. I was amazed at how much tasty juice there was.

    I served with English cucumber cut on the diagonal and wheat and white flatbread wedges. I also julienned some red pepper and jalapeno to dress up the top with some color and chile zip.

    Great recipe, my dear - thank you! I have sent you some pics to peruse and use. High 5! ;-) ~Vickie

    P.S. Aren't my olive plates nice?

    I love placing any herb under the skin of a roasting chicken like you have done here. Making a spice rub is wonderful too!
    A great way to make friends is to serve them this recipe.

    thanks for the recipe! sounds delish! so I just added an extra chicken to my order from the farm! I keep cinnamon and ginger shakers at the table and use them like (and with) salt and pepper to regulate my blood sugar when I'm pregnant - which keeps the food down! thank you so much, jimrug1!
