Spicing a chicken

What spices do you use to enhance the flavor of a chicken? Today, I will be showing you the spices that I used to enhance the flavor of a chicken I just prepared.

While I love to cook, sometimes I just need tiny moments for myself, and preparing a chicken just as I did today gave me that. Because all you have to do is sprinkle three unique seasonings on the raw chicken, then place it in an oven-safe pan, and bake it in the oven for a couple of hours. So, while the chicken is cooking, you'll have time to accomplish other things around the house. There's no measuring involved and hardly any dirty dishes to wash afterward. That is unless you plan to prepare a lot of side dishes to go with the meal. Today, I will be making a salad to go with our meal.

Chicken is something that I prepare a lot of in my kitchen. I prefer buying a whole chicken over selecting pre-cut pieces of chicken. It is cheaper to buy a whole chicken than to purchase it pre-cut in select pieces, and once it's prepared, it simply tastes better to me.

Seasonings/Gin Lee

Spice Ingredients:

In preparation today, I sprinkled the spices on the chicken. Therefore, I didn't measure anything.

  • Weber Roasted Garlic & Herb seasoning
  • Marshalls Creek Spices- Soul Seasoning
  • Lawry's Smoked Paprika

Main ingredients:

  • 1 whole chicken

Generally, I use chives, cracked black pepper, seasoning salt, paprika, and fresh garlic for seasoning chicken. However, all of those ingredients weren't necessarily needed today. Because all of those ingredients are already in the seasonings that I used.

After I sprinkled the seasonings on the chicken, I placed it in an oven-safe Pyrex dish. Then I put the chicken in a preheated 375 F degrees oven to bake.

The chicken I prepared today was six pounds, and it took approximately two and a half hours of cooking time.

It is within my mission to ensure that readers will receive original and valuable news content. The content will be written about a large variety of topics. I find my inspiration in the art of design, illustrations, as well as writing content for viewers like you! As an author, designer, artist, animal rescuer, food blogger, organic gardener, freelance journalist, and contributor, I strive to encourage my readers to learn about topics that they may not be fluent in, as well as share my common knowledge about important elements of interest. Because, as circumstances have it, I do live in an extraordinarily rural area, of which I'm proud to profess. Writing for NewsBreak is an enlightened and enjoyable experience. It's been a collection of milestones for me. Concurrently, you (as well as I) have touched base on so many news levels, and we have all learned from the research I've done on a variety of topics. Although this is just a small token of my appreciation to all of my readers and followers, I want to say with a happy heart, and my arms wide open- Thank you for being you! And thank you for liking, subscribing, and following me! It means more to me than mere words can say! Addressing the rudeness in the room (in a way of speaking). Rudeness and hatefulness is why I turn the comments off on the articles in which I write. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking, and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. I don't have the comments turned off because I can't handle ill manners. I turn them off because I do have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Sometimes I get busy and I don't get to turn off the comment notifications until a few hours have passed. This is why sometimes a few comments squeak through. I apologize to those of you who generally are very sweet and I also apologize to my followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. I hope that as my followers, you'll be understanding of the measures that I have to take. Please be kind to one another.
