Curry Rubbed Roasted Chicken!!!

When I was at the store the other day whole chickens were on sale for 83 cents a pound!!!! That's like stupid I stocked up!!! My standard roasted chicken recipe wasn't really floating my boat, even though it is totally delicious, so I decided to mix it up! Years ago Oprah published a super tasty curry rubbed chicken recipe and that was all I could think about. I wanted that recipe but with a little bit more spicy goodness. I've combined a couple of recipes together here to make this amazing chicken! Serve this with rice and some tasty green vegetables to help cool your mouth off. You could even make a lovely apple chutney to go along with this warm and spicy dish.

Roasted Curry Rubbed Chicken

1 whole chicken, 3-4 lbs.

2 tbsp sweet paprika
1 tbsp chili powder
8 tsp curry powder
4 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp kosher salt
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground sage
1/4 tsp ground ginger

4 tsp olive oil
1 yellow onion, peeled and quartered

  1. Preheat your oven to 425F (Yes!!! Make it a hot!!!) Line a roasting pan with heavy duty foil. Set it aside. 
  2. In a small bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients. Take your chicken out of the fridge and dry it off with a paper towel. 
  3. Rub the inside and outside of your chicken with the olive oil. This will help the rub stick so be sure to do this! 
  4. Now take the rub and rub in ALL OVER the inside and outside of your chicken. Use ALL of the rub! Don't be afraid!!!! Use it all!!!!
  5. Stuff the onion into the chicken cavity and place your chicken in the roasting pan.
  6. Place in oven and roast for 75-85 minutes, turning at least once during the cooking process. Make sure your chicken is done. The internal temperature should be at least 165F.
