DIRECTIONS

  • After rinsing, drying and removing giblets, refresh the chicken cavity with a couple of good squeezes of lemon juice.
  • Place onion half in the chicken cavity.
  • Combine salt, paprika, thyme, onion powder, peppers and garlic powder in a plastic zipper bag; place chicken in bag and coat it thoroughly with the spice mixture; really rub it into the skin; let chicken season in the bag, refrigerated overnight.
  • The next day, let chicken warm up slightly; preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Remove chicken from zipper bag and place chicken in a roasting pan, breast side up, and roast uncovered at 325 degrees for the first hour; then reduce heat to 275 degrees F and continue to roast uncovered at that temperature for another 3-1/2 to 4 hours, basting at least twice in that time.
  • To test for doneness, try moving a chicken leg; it will move freely and when poked, juices will run clear.
  • When done, remove chicken and let stand for at least 5 minutes, then carve and serve!
