it can be simple, complicated, whatever. (preferable something that tastes good) tonight i am making a roasted chicken... it has some of the BEST flavour. it works well for turkey too. here's what you need 2 tsp. salt 1 tsp. paprika 3/4 tsp. onion powder 1/2 tsp. thyme 1/2 tsp. white pepper 1/4 tsp. garlic powder 1/4 tsp. pepper 1- 3 pound chicken i cup onion, chopped mix the dry ingrediants and rub mixture into chicken, inside and out. place in a plastic bag in fridge over night. stuff cavity with onions and roast, uncovered at 250 about 5 hours. baste occasionally (i love the word baste, it's funny) (with a bigger chicken or turkey, double the spices then make some mashed potatoes, use the juice to make a gravy... and you got.... yummers your turn.
