Oven Roasted Chicken

Oven Roasted Chicken

This was a great meal prep recipe! I roasted two chickens and my family enjoyed it throughout the week.


1 Whole Chicken, giblets removed
2 Tbs Olive Oil
1 Tbs Dried Paprika
1 Tbs Dried Parsley
1/2 Tbs Dried Garlic
1/2 Tbs Ground Pepper
1/2 Tbs Salt
1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Tsp Red Pepper
1 Half of a lemon to stuff in the cavity of the chicken
A quarter of an onion to stuff in the cavity of the chicken
3 Tbs Vegan Earth Balance Butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix olive oil and dry spices together in a small bowl.
  3. Stuff the chicken with the lemon and onion, and place on your roasting rack.
  4. Coat olive oil/spices generously over the skin of the chicken.
  5. Cook the chicken for 60 minutes. Take it out, baste with the juices that are in the roasting pan, and add the 3 Tbs of butter to the top of the bird.
  6. Drop the heat of the oven to 325, cover the roasting pan with foil and cook for another 20-30 minutes, until fully cooked and juices are clear.
