Very easy to make and delicious, juicy chicken! I added some poultry seasoning to the mix and a little bit of water in the bottom of the pan so that it would stay moistened while cooking!

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!

Wow! The season combination is great! I am roasting bone-in chicken breasts for a chicken casserole and the smell in the kitchen is amazing! I will use this recipe again!

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.
