Roast/Fried Chicken Seasoning

I found a recipe for "Mimi's Sticky Chicken" several years ago on a homeschool forum I participate in.

  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix these spices together and spread evenly over a whole 3lb chicken. The actual recipe suggests putting 1 cup of chopped onions in the empty chicken cavity. I usually skip that part, I might do it if my husband is going to be home. But normally not.

Cook at 225 deg. for 5 hours. It's a wonderful meal!

I found myself making this recipe so often, I decided once to just mix all the spices together at once. Here are the spices multiplied by 6. One chicken would need 2 TBSP of this spice mixture. This means that you could make 6 roast chickens with this mixture. I just mix it up and put it in a gladware container.

  • 4 TBSP salt
  • 2 TBSP paprika
  • 1.5 TBSP cayenne pepper
  • 1 TBSP onion powder
  • 1 TBSP thyme
  • 1 TBSP white pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp pepper

I also use this mixture for fried chicken. I put 1 TBSP of this spice mixture into a 1/2 cup of flour for a fried chicken seasoning. I sometimes add a bit more paprika because that's what I like.

This sounds really yummy. I wonder how it would be in a crock pot?
