my kids all love this


Spicy Roast Chicken: (can be made in oven or crockpot)

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper (can use less for less 'heat', but I wouldn't omit)
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Combine spices and rub all over chicken, being sure to get under the skin wherever possible and the inside cavity. Bake in oven (covered) at 325 for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours depending on size of chicken OR place in crockpot, cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.

Chicken and gravy over rice
Just brown chicken legs and thighs in a skillet with garlic and herbs, remove from skillet and you can use either a packet of chicken gravy with water or can of cream of.. soup and can of milk. Bring to boil and reduce heat and return chicken to skillet. Cover and let simmer until chicken is cooked. Kids love it
