Unique Roasted Chicken



Cook time: 1 Hr  Prep time: 15 Min  Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
4 lb whole chicken
2 tsp salt
1 tsp white sugar
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cinnamon
2 1/2 Tbsp chopped roasted garlic
Directions
Test Kitchen Tips: Keep an eye on the chicken as it roasts. If the top is burning, gently cover it with aluminum foil and continue roasting until fully cooked. Also, the bottom of this chicken is not crips. If you want it crisp, flip the chicken halfway through the process.
1. In a bowl, mix the salt, sugar, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
2. Rub the chicken with the mixture. (For added flavor, cover the chicken, and place it in the refrigerator for 24 hours before cooking).
3. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Rub the chicken cavity with the chopped roasted garlic. Place the chicken, breast side down, on a rack in a roasting pan.
4. Roast for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce heat to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) and continue roasting for 15 minutes. Baste chicken with pan drippings, reduce heat to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C), and continue roasting for 30 minutes, to an internal temperature of 180 degrees F (85 degrees C). Let stand 20 minutes before serving.
5. If you cook this in July, you will swear it is Christmas from the yummy smell in your kitchen! The first time I made this my husband said it was the best chicken he had ever had. It stays moist and juicy and so yummy.
