One whole chicken

Two big peeled carrots
4 tsp Salt
2 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp White pepper
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp Black pepper
I usually make a big batch of this rub and put it in an airtight container. My own chicken seasoning instead of buying it. Simple, non?
Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
Clean chicken and pat dry. Remember to look inside the cavity for heart and gizzards. My mom would cook these when making chicken soup. Moi? I cook it for my dog. Excellent source of protein and she loves it!
Now season the chicken inside and out with these spices. Makes sure you rub it inside the skin so that the meat will be flavored too. Add the quartered onions in.
I usually serve these with potatoes or rice and steamed broccoli. I might try asparagus but hubby is not crazy for them.
Once my chicken is cooked, I will post pictures of it. It's still cooking right now. Real time cooking people. Check back to see how it looks!
See how much liquid that chicken gave out? Well it's mostly fat.
