    1. 1
      Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Rinse chicken with cool water, inside and out - then pat dry with paper towels.
    3. 3
      Combine the cinnamon stick, cloves, cayenne, cumin, fennel, coriander and paprika in a dry skillet over low heat and toast for a minute - just to release the fragrant oils - shake pan so spices don't scorch.
    4. 4
      In a clean coffee grinder, grind the toasted spices together with the sea salt and brown sugar.
    5. 5
      Massage the chicken skin with the spice rub, making sure you don't miss any spots.
    6. 6
      Season the inside of the chicken with salt and pepper.
    7. 7
      Stuff the lemon halves, cilantro and garlic into the cavity of the chicken.
    8. 8
      Place the chicken into a roasting pan, fitted with a rack, and fold the wing tips under the chicken and tie the legs together with kitchen string.
    9. 9
      Drizzle oil all over chicken. If you have the time, let the chicken sit for 30 minutes to really let the flavors meld into the chicken.
    10. 10
      Roast the chicken for one hour, then check with an instant read thermometer into the thickest part of the thigh - if it reads 160 degrees F, then it's done!
    11. 11
      Take the chicken out of the oven and let it sit for 10 minutes before carving - so the juices can settle back into the meat.
    12. 12
      Squeeze the lemon halves that have cooked inside the chicken over the meat for added wow.

      Wow! This is just unbelieveably delicious! I am a big fan of roast chicken and I have fixed it many different ways, with many different flavors, but I have never had a roast chicken where the flavor was all thru the meat like this! It is just so so good! I wanted to swim in the spice smelled so heavenly and tasted even better! I want to make some up to have on hand, I'll bet it is fabulous on halibut! I can't wait for the left overs, I'll bet this will make a wonderful chicken salad! Made for ZWT9 Family Pick

      This is a really nice spice mix! I put it on chicken thighs, then roasted them. So good! I wish I'd had time to let them marinate, but even just rubbing them with the spice mix and cooking immediately made for a wonderful meal. Made for ZWT9

      The combination of spices was fabulous! I didn't have cumin seeds or corander seeds but substituted with ground cumin and coriander. I used my chopper because I didn't have a coffee grinder. I would love to taste this chicken by using a rotisserie oven as Charlotte did but it was fabulous cooked in the oven. This seasoning would be great to put on chicken breasts and cooked on the grill.
