Baked Spiced Chicken Recipe:Whole Chicken

Mildly spiced and slightly sweet chicken that comes out moist and tasty.

1 tablespoon mild paprika

1 tablespoon dried parsley

2 teaspoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon dry mustard powder

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 (3 1/2) pound whole chicken, cut into pieces

2 tablespoons vegetable oil


① Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Combine the paprika, parsley, sugar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl; set aside.
② Place the chicken pieces in a 9×13 inch baking dish, and coat with the vegetable oil; arrange skin-side up. Sprinkle evenly with the spice mixture.
③ Bake the chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

    This is delicious. I used chicken legs. I brushed each with a small amount of oil and then rolled in the spices. So easy and what a kick!
