  1. Combine the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, parsley, oregano, cayenne pepper, sage, thyme, coriander, celery seed, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Rub the chicken inside and out with the spice blend. Stuff the cavity of the chicken with the crushed garlic and onion. Place into a 9x13-inch baking dish and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 4 hours to overnight.
  2. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  3. Remove and discard the plastic wrap. Bake the chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 180 degrees F (82 degrees C). Remove the chicken from the oven, cover with a doubled sheet of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area for 10 minutes before slicing.

I only made the spice mix so my review is based on that. We absolutely love it! I've been using it as an all purpose lower salt mix on everything. Very flavorful. I did use less sage to make it ...

Great recipe for roasted chicken! What a wonderful blend of herbs and spices! I rubbed the chicken and let it marinate for a full 24 hours which I highly recommend. Perfect for Sunday dinner. T...

I really enjoyed this. I have never actually roasted a whole chicken before so this was a big step for me. I didn't have all the ingredients (celery seed) but it tasted great. What I did diff...

I haven't tried this one yet but I am going out to get the ingredients I don't have! I have a suggestion for almost any roast chicken- sprinkle the chicken/pieces liberally with ground ginger a...

not sure wht went wrong, but this was so dry. I think it needs oil and butter on the outside and inside to moisten it up.

This was quite delicious! On Sarah's recommendation I tired it with some drumsticks and split breasts I had on hand. Everyone loved it! I had only used a dry rub on ribs before and was not su...

We really enjoyed this one, more than others I’ve done in the past!! Thank you, Sarah!! The seasoning blend is wonderful and I liberally coated the entire bird, which gave it tons of flavor. ...
