Roasted Chicken

I promised Mama Konicki I would post this recipe. Here we go...

Roasted Chicken

2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cinnamon
5 cloves garlic, crushed
3-4 lb whole chicken

Mix all spices together and rub chicken all over. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (better overnight). Preheat oven to 500. Stuff crushed garlic into chicken cavity (I added some cut up onion too). Put in a roasting pan BREAST SIDE DOWN! (Important for juiciness.)

Here's the breakdown:
15 minutes at 500
15 minutes at 450
15 minutes at 425
Flip chicken over to breast side up for last 15-20 minutes to brown and crisp skin.

Internal temp should be 180. Let stand 20 minutes before carving.

You should have a delicious moist chicken that has a hint of sweetness.
