Perfect recipe for the holidays! This chicken on the bottle is my mom's recipe. She made this chicken often when I was a kid. It's juicy and just simply delicious!!! I have the Best Thanksgiving Turkey recipe posted last year on my blog:)
5 lbs whole chicken
1/2 cup mayo
1 tbs Sea salt
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp ground coriander
1/8 tsp ground cumin (optional)
1/4 tsp black pepper
7 cloves of garlic, minced
1 glass bottle
1 tbs vegeta seasoning or 1 tsp salt
1 bay leaf
Rinse the chicken. Mix mayo and spices.
Spread mayo mixture all over the chicken even under the skin. Leave it overnight.
Preheat oven to 375 F. Cut onion into strips add it to the bottle then add vegeta (or salt) and bay leaf.
Fill the bottle with hot water. Place it on the baking dish.
Put the chicken on the bottle. Add a few apples around the chicken (optional).
Roast for 20 min on 375 F. Then roast at 350 F for 45 min.
