Herb Roasted Chicken

While crispy chicken skin is a classic favorite, this dinner is nutritionally best when cooked skin is removed before eating.

Yield: 10 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Roast Time: 75 to 90 minutes

3 to 4 pounds whole chicken
1-1/2 tablespoons Mazola® Corn Oil
2 teaspoons Italian herb seasoning
1 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon onion salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black fine grind pepper

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Combine oil and spices in a small bowl; set aside.

Rinse and pat dry chicken. Place in roasting pan. Gently pull chicken skin on breast away from the meat. Rub 1 to 2 teaspoons seasoned oil between chicken skin and meat.  Rub remaining seasoned oil over chicken, coating it well.

Roast for 75 to 90 minutes or until internal temperature of thickest part of thigh reaches 165º. Cover breast with foil the last 30 minutes of baking to prevent overbrowning. Remove from oven; rest 5 minutes before slicing.
