"So good! I put an onion inside the chicken and put potatoes, carrots, and celery in the pan. I used olive oil over everything before adding the seasoning. Even my kids loved it!"

"I rubbed chicken with olive oil before applying spices. I also put an onion in the cavity. In addition, I put red potatoes & carrots around chicken in roasting pan. I sprinkled garlic power too over chicken & veggies. Yummy!!"
