Roasted Chicken Recipe

"This moist and tender chicken is a real time-saver on a busy weekend," writes Marian Platt of Sequim, Washington. "A simple blend of seasonings makes it a snap to prepare, and it smells heavenly as it roasts."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours + standing YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoon onion salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 broiler/fryer chickens (3 to 4 pounds each)

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. Mix seasonings.
  • 2. Place chickens on a rack in a roasting pan, breast side up. Tuck under wings; tie together drumsticks. Rub seasonings over outside and inside of chickens. Roast until a thermometer inserted in thickest part of thigh reads 170°-175°, 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours. (Cover loosely with foil if chicken browns too quickly.)
  • 3. Remove chickens from oven; tent with foil. Let stand 15 minutes before carving. Yield: 12 servings.

"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!!"

"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."

"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."

"Delicious! I made this for dinner tonight and it was amazing. I followed the recipe not realizing it called for two chickens, I used the entire seasoning on one chicken with some onion in the chicken cavity. This was really good and I will be making this again."

"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."
