Roasted Whole Chicken

I was inspired to make my own roasted chicken today. I've never done this before but was inspired by a recipe on Spoon it On. I bought three whole chickens from Costco today and decided to bake two for dinner. I didn't look at the recipe beforehand and realized just before baking my chicken that I didn't have any of the ingredients that were listed on her recipe. I improvised and hoped for the best.


One whole chicken
Montreal Steak Spice
one medium onion

Preheat oven to 350F. I washed the chicken and then sprinkled Montreal Steak Spice into the chicken, put a small dollop of margarine and half of the onion into the cavity. Sprinkled the rest of the chicken with the Montreal Steak Spice. Baked for an hour and a half or until the internal temperature read 185F. Take out of the oven and baste with the pan juices. Cover with foil and let rest for 20 minutes before carving. It was delicious!
