I make up this seasoning mix in bulk and store in a mason jar. It is also good on oven baked potatoes wedges and seasoning pork roast or chops. I use a rotisserie for this chicken but it bakes in the oven just as well.
I love rotisserie chicken, so I simply could not wait to try this recipe. We were in the middle of a deep-freeze when I tried this, so I opted to prepare it in the oven rather than on the grill. (You can bet I'll be out at the grill as soon as the weather warms up!) The flavor of the rub is really good - I think I will hide the leftovers from the rest of the family...
Place chicken in a roasting pan. Bake uncovered for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, to a minimum internal temperature of 180 degrees F (85 degrees C). Use meat thermometer to check in the thigh. Baste a few times the last hour if not using rotisserie. Let the chicken stand, covered in foil, for 10 minutes before carving.
