How to Make Roasted Sticky Chicken


  1. You need to start this the night before serving.
  2. In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices.
  3. Remove giblets from chicken, clean the cavity well and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Rub the spice mixture into the chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly distributed and down deep into the skin.
  5. Place in a resealable plastic bag, seal and refrigerate overnight.
  6. When ready to roast chicken, stuff cavity with onions, and place in a shallow baking pan.
  7. Roast, uncovered, at 250 degrees for 5 hours.
  8. After the first hour, baste chicken occasionally (every half hour or so) with pan juices.
  9. The pan juices will start to caramelize on the bottom of pan and the chicken will turn golden brown.
  10. If the chicken contains a pop-up thermometer, ignore it.
  11. Let chicken rest about 10 minutes before carving.
  12. Variation: Get a lemon or two, use a fork and poke them full of holes, and put them in the chicken cavity.
  13. Roast as usual.
