WOW!! What a great chicken recipe. My family devoured the whole chicken and asked that I make this again. The flavor combination is great. Very easy to make too. I'm going to try the seasonings on pork too since it makes more than enough. Thanks for sharing this recipe Mark.

This is very tasty. I made with cut up roaster instead of whole chicken. Marinted all day. I used 1 tablespoon each of the seasoning and it was the perfect amount. Deeelicious !

I made this with 2 chicken breasts. I cut up a few potatoes, carrots and onions and drizzled it with olive oil, then sprinkled it with the seasoning mix. I baked the veggies for 25 minutes then placed the chicken breasts on top. I only marinated the chicken for 30 minutes. I then sprinkled more of the seasoning. It was very simple and very tasty. The only thing I will change is next time I will use half the salt. Great recipe and very versatile!
