I make up this seasoning mix in bulk and store it 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.

We love rotisserie chicken, so we could not wait to try this recipe. Wow! This is a really good roast chicken. The seasoning has a nice balance of flavor and really infuses into the chicken. Most people forget about seasoning the inside of the chicken (and this recipe does). Stuffing with onions add more flavor and permeates throughout the chicken. If you cover the chicken loosely with foil after an hour, it will produce a lot of natural juices to baste the chicken with. This is the perfect roast chicken for any occasion.

Note: You can cut back on the salt and cayenne if you'd like and the seasoning is just s flavorful. Also, make sure to use a meat thermometer since all chickens are not the same size. Ours roasted for a little longer than 2 hours. The Test Kitchen
