Clean Rub Chicken

This is the easiest meal to make, very affordable (whole chicken costs about $7.00) and always so, so, very delicious. It’s pretty tough to mess anything up because there are only two ingredients. I usually make it once a week and use the leftover chicken for a salad, fried rice, etc.


1 Whole Chicken

Rub (anything you like, I use the Northwoods Rub from Penzey’s, but you can also use salt and pepper as a substitute)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Rinse inside and outside of chicken. Pat dry with paper towel. Try to get out as much moisture as possible.

Generously season outside and inside of chicken with rub, or salt and pepper.

Using kitchen or other ovenproof string wrap together legs and pull wings in towards each other so that they are hugging the breast. By keeping the chicken in as tight of a ball as possible it will help to keep the meat nice and moist.

Place in large baking dish or roasting pan and bake for about 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Pull out chicken, and using a brush soak up moisture on bottom of the pan and brush the outside of the chicken. Again, helping to retain natural juices and moisture.

Carve and enjoy!
