      This is the absolute *BEST* roast chicken I've ever made, or eaten for that matter. The flavour is wonderful, and the crispy skin is to die for. The best part is the juicy meat underneath. I was a little scared of the very high temperature, but there was no need to be. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe.

      Sooooo good! This was super easy and tasted amazing. I was a little leery of these spices on chicken, but oh.. I'm so glad I tried it. I used "half chickens" and served them just like they came out with potatoes and corn. (See picture) This is a keeper!!! Made for PAC 2008. Okay... so it's August now, and I'm still making this wonderful recipe. I make it in my crockpot, so it's super fast. Just rub the spices on the chicken, cook it on high for about 5 hours and bam, you have amazing, tender chicken!

      I made this recipe while I was a chef at a very nice restaurant (1 of the 2!) on Washington Island in Wisconsin. We served it as a roast chicken and also used the breast for sandwiches. The skin and dark meat was usually family meal that we just devoured. Great recipe, you won't be disappointed!!
