Reviews for Roasted Chicken
"Easy and very tasty."
"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!"
"the nutritional facts are wrong.12oz is over 300 cal and no way a serving size"
"I had never roasted a chicken before I tried this recipe. WOW. I looked at the comments from others and decided to put an onion in the cavity. The house smelled so good all of us were hungry. It's so simple to have a chicken to eat now and one to freeze for later. Thank you, Taste of Home! Have made this recipe several times with variations on the spices. Always turns out great."
"This was great. Simple, moist, and ready right on time... Loved it. Will make this often."
"It was very good, very basic roasted chicken. The meat was a little drier than I like if it wasn't mixed with the broth that was made while cooking."
"I forgot t mark 5 stars!!"
"Delicious! I don't keep celery salt and onion salt in the house - so I used a little bit of celery seed and onion powder - used the olive oil as well. Definitely will make again, all loved it!!"
"VERY good!! Someone suggested brushing the chicken with olive oil and that was a fantastic suggestion, made for perfect crispy skin! My entire family loved it!"
"Next time, I would spread the salty seasonings on the back and inside like the recipe says instead of all on the top like I did as the top was just a little too salty. I used a free-range chicken and it turned out fantastic."
"Very easy and tasty! I poured a little olive oil over the chicken then topped with the seasoning. Delicious and moist!"
"My first whole chicken and it turned out great! I did replace the salt with garlic salt and I didn't have any onion salt so I used onion powder instead."
"This chicken came out moist, tender and very tasty. I will make this one again!"
"I used a reynolds cooking bag, threw a couple of red skinned potatoes in w/it and it turned out great!!!! Yum :)"
