    evelyn/athens's Note:

    For all of you familiar with Mimi's Sticky Chicken, the technique in this recipe will ring a bell. It is a great way to roast a yummy bird when you have to be away from home for a while. This is my rendition.

      The seasoning mixture in this recipe is "spot on". Instead of using regular paprika, I used Spanish smoked paprika (also known as sweet smoked paprika and pimenton), which added another dimension of flavor. I only had garlic and onion powders on hand, so I used them instead of fresh or granules. At home during the cooking time, I was surprised by how each ingredient's fragrance filled the kitchen at different times. I was also surprised by the amount of liquid and fat that rendered out of the chicken, and was glad I had cooked it in a 9x13 pan. The end result was moist, succulent and delicious, and I really appreciated the ease of preparation. There were leftovers, so I found that most of what rendered from the chicken were juices which jellied when refrigerated and which made it easy to remove the TBSP of fat that remained. Thank you for sharing your creation, Ev!

      Sensational marinade with remarkable results. This is such a simple concept, but the taste and ease of preparation makes this a true winner. I bumped the oven up to 300 degrees F and roasted for about 4 hours. This is a lazy (wo)man's dream come true. Thanks, evelyn/athens, if this is any indication of your cooking expertise, I'll be amassing your other recipes in my cookbooks.

      This long, slow roasting method turns a humble bird into something glorious. Creating the marinade paste was quick and simple, as was rubbing it on the chicken. I followed Evelyn's recipe and directions exactly which were clear and easy to follow. After 5 hours away from home, I returned to the most heavenly aroma and a delectable meal. Great recipe Evelyn, thanks.
