Looking for an easy recipe for roasted chicken? Well, look no further! I made this chicken for dinner last night and my family couldn’t get enough! My husband and three year old daughter went back for seconds. I absolutely love cooking in my cast iron skillet. You literally just need to clean and season the chicken and place it in the oven. That’s it! I didn’t have time to let my chicken marinate and it didn’t matter! The chicken came out so flavorful, tender and amazing. Here’s how to make the rub and the gravy. How to make the rub: 2 tablespoons of olive oil 1 1/2 teaspoons of kosher salt 1 teaspoon of paprika 1 teaspoon of black pepper 3/4 teaspoon of FlavorGod everything seasoning (can be found online) 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder How to make the gravy 1/4 cup of cooking white wine 1 tablespoon of cornstarch 1/4 cup of water 1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. 2. Clean your whole chicken and pat dry inside and out. 3. In a small bowl, mix olive oil, paprika, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, FlavorGod everything seasoning, and chili powder. Whisk until smooth. 4. Brush rub on the entire chicken and under the skin of the chicken breast. 5. Place chicken in the cast iron skillet breast side up. 6. Place skillet in the oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees once the chicken is in the oven. 7. Roast the chicken for 20 minutes per pound. Use meat thermometer to make sure your chicken is ready. Once the thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit, your bird is done.
To make the gravy, remove the chicken and set aside. Add 1/4 cup white cooking wine and reduce by half. Mix one tablespoon of cornstarch and 1/4 cup of water in a separate bowl and whisk until smooth. Add cornstarch mixture to the pan. Simmer for about 5-7 mins and spoon gravy on top of chicken and enjoy!
