This recipe is a family staple and is so frequently posted on the web I can't credit the orginal poster. You gotta try this - moist and tender with a delicious mildly spicy crust! I also have done this on my grill slow cooking it and it turned out great.

Sticky Chicken

1 lg Chicken -- roasting
1 c Onion -- chopped
1/2 ts Black pepper
1/2 ts Garlic powder
1 t White pepper
1 t Thyme
1 t Onion powder
1 t Cayenne pepper
2 ts Paprika
4 ts Salt

In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices. Remove giblets from chicken, clean the cavity well and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the spice mixture into the chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly distributed and down deep into the skin. Place in a resealable plastic bag,seal and refrigerate overnight. When ready to roast chicken, stuff cavity with onions, and place in ashallow baking pan. Roast, uncovered, at 250 degrees F for 5 hours. After the first hour, baste chicken occasionally (every half hour or so) with pan juices. (It may take awhile to have pan juices) The pan juices will start to caramelize on the bottom of pan and the chicken will turn golden brown. If the chicken contains a pop-up thermometer, ignore it. Let chicken rest about 10 minutes before carving. NOTES : This recipe is a great way to roast a large chicken for planned leftovers, and it is very easy to make. This freezes well.

This is a recipe I've made before with great results.

Yesterday I made "sticky chicken" with Moroccan spices ("Ras el Hanout") instead of the spice mix in the recipe. I already had Ras el Hanout (purchased prepared) in a jar, so why not? I only had to use about half the volume of spice, and 1/4 the amount of salt to give it a nice flavor.

If you want to make your own Moroccan spice blend, here's a recipe:


I also added 1 cup of water to the roasting pan at the start of the recipe. My bird was a bit small, I decreased the oven temperature to 220F after 3 hours and ended roasting at 4.25 hours.

My chicken was fall off the bone tender and juicy
