Monday Morning Recipe

When Cowodie was little he would not eat meat of any sort...milk he would go through gallons, but no meat! One evening I made the following recipe and he stood beside the counter as I carved the meat taking as many bites as I would feed him, much in the same manner as a baby bird. Roasted chicken is not one of RacerDad's favorite things to eat, but he makes an exception with this recipe. As he said that night..."if he will eat it, make it every week!"

Sticky chicken is a very simple recipe that is moist and flavorful. I have yet to make it for someone who does not like it. Don't be scared off by the amount of pepper, it is not hot...right Mrs. M.?

Sticky Chicken

Make a dry rub of:

4 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Massage this rub onto one whole chicken, under the skin, on the outer skin and inside the cavity. Refrigerate overnight. Put a quartered onion in the cavity, then place chicken in a roasting pan. Bake at 250 degrees for 5 hours. After the first hour the chicken will begin making juices, baste frequently. The pan juices will begin to carmelize and become darker in color.

Ok, my recipe is even easier. I don't open the foil until it comes out- I didn't know you were supposed to baste! I only use 1/2 the cayenne pepper. :)Mrs. M
