Garlicky Chicken


Hi Housewives!

It’s Monday night and after a long day of work and then a 4pm class at the gym I was in the mood for something yummy.  Tonight is the perfect evening for a cozy meal.  It’s getting chillier over here and that makes me want some comfort food.  I decided to make a whole roasted chicken. The thing with this is that I really don’t necessarily follow a particular recipe.  Every time I make a whole chicken I grab whatever I have in the house to season and accompany it.

Since I hit up the farm stand yesterday I knew I wanted our side to be the fresh brussel sprouts.  I will post that recipe a little later on though.  Let’s get back to our chicken recipe. It smells great in here and the oven is heating up the whole house nicely.  I have this All Natural Roasted Garlic & Herb Seasoning by Weber that I used to season the chicken tonight.  Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 whole chicken rinsed and salted (I discard the bagged insides)
  • Place Chicken in roasting pan or pyrex
  • Pour about 1-2 tablespoons over chicken and rub it all over the chicken
  • Sprinkle a generous amount of the Weber Seasoning all over the chicken
  • 5 cloves of chopped fresh garlic on top of chicken and some inside
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 1 small onion quartered placed in pan and inside of chicken

I placed some baby carrots and cherry tomatoes around the chicken in the baking dish and seasoned them with salt and pepper.

Cover chicken and place in oven at 350-375.  Cook for about 2 hours or until juices run clear.  I take the foil off for the last portion of it to darken the skin and to give it that nice brown roasted look!
