  • In large bowl combine all of the spices.
  • Remove giblets from chicken, clean cavity and pat the chicken dry.

  • Place chicken in resealable plastic bag (or use your foodsaver).
  • Seal and refrigerate overnight.
  • When ready to roast the chicken, preheat oven to 250.
  • Stuff cavity with onion and place in a shallow baking pan breast side down until the last hour of cooking.
  • Roast uncovered at 250 for 5 hours (cooking time is less if you use a smaller chicken).

  • In the last hour of cooking, flip the chicken breast side up to get an even colour.
