Perfect Roasted Chicken
1-2 Tablespoon My Family’s Poultry Seasonings, divided
2 Tablespoon butter, softened
1 Whole (3-4 LB) chicken
2 Oranges, cut and quartered
1 Medium onion, cut into wedges
2 Tablespoon olive oil
6 ozs. spinach, rinsed
2 ounces feta cheese crumbled
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix 2 tsp My Family’s Poultry Seasoning with butter. Rub 3/4 of butter mixture under chicken skin (breasts and legs) and remaining mixture on the outside of chicken. Sprinkle 1 tsp. My Family’s Poultry Seasoning over outside of chicken and stuff 4 orange halves, 2 leeks, 2 carrots, onion wedges, inside the chicken cavity.
For best results, use a poultry bag. Follow cooking instructions from bag. Form a rack in the bottom on the bag by arranging a single layer of a leek, carrot, leek, carrot, or you can do the same with in a roasting pan. When using a roasting pan be sure to cover poultry when cooking. The leeks will flavor the meat and make a great pan gravy. It will also prevent the skin from sticking to the pan.
Remove chicken or turkey from oven; let rest 10 minutes.
OPTIONAL: Transfer vegetables to a large skillet. Add salt and pepper. Cook 1-2 minutes over low heat. Toss in spinach just before serving. Cook 1-2 minutes or until leaves wilt. Remove from heat; gently stir in feta and juice of one-half orange. Remove vegetables to a large platter. Carve chicken and serve over vegetables.
*Tip: Use an instant-read thermometer . . . this gives a far more accurate reading.
