You can really smell the cinnamon in the seasoning. I thought that it might be dominant in the flavor, but all the seasonings blended well and the chicken was so juicy. DS declared the skin the best part! Next time I may add just a tad more cayenne for a little more heat though. Great recipe, Wicked! Made for ZWT5 for Saucy Senoritas.
Prepared for our Easter Dinner. We liked it OK, but may not make it again right away.
Wow! This was just fabulous. The spice rub was so tasty, with just the right blend of assorted spices. And the lime and rum baste was very tasty and topped off the roasting process just perfectly. This is one dish that I will definitely make often. The chicken was very moist and so fork-tender, so there was no need to really carve the roasting chicken. Rather, it just sort of fell right off the bone and onto the platter. Many many thanks, wicked cook 46. Made for "Every Day Is A Holiday" tag game.
This is absolutely fantastic! The combination of spices is right on, with just the perfect amount of kick, and the basting liquid is a perfect match. My chicken was about 4.5 pounds so I doubled all of the other ingredients and cooked it just a bit longer. The chicken was so tender and juicy with wonderful flavor. I cooked mine in the oven this time but am looking forward to grilling the next one. Will make this often - thanks for posting the recipe!
This was fabulous !!!! I didn't change a thing. Did it on the rotisseri on the BBQ. This is a keeper for me.
This is one good recipe. Even though it was below zero, it was great! I only used 2 chicken breast and halved the recipe. Served it with Carribean Rice and Beans Caribbean Rice and Beans and Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon chips Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips.
I stumbled across this recipe while looking for a way to cook a chicken to impress a dinner date I had coming over. It was easy to make (I'm a bachelor who usually eats take out) and came out wonderful! I've used it every time I have a date over that I need to impress. Thanks!
