The chicken was great - we loved the seasonings, however, this recipe took us far longer to cook in the oven. I followed the instructions and we probably ending up cooking twice if not three times as long. We also increased the temperature from 350 to 375 and then 385 to get it to cook. - 03 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have been making this for a long time now, the whole family loves it! I made it with the seasonings in the recipe and yes it was alil salty but still good. The next time i made this i used season salt, cajun, and italian seasoning...It was even better!! Oh and another review said it took twice to three times longer to bake- this can be true depending on the size of the bird. I cooked mine at the temp it said for as long as it said and well it was sooo not done. I jacked up the heat to 400 and cooked for another 40min MUCH BETTER! - 07 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The blend of seasoning was very good. However, the salt content is extremely high and was overpowering if you ate the skin of the chicken (and I only used half of the seasoning mixture) and I had a larger chicken. I would reduce the amount of salt (seasoned & regular). Chicken was very moist! I did mine in the oven, but will try sometime on the grill also. Will be using the carcass for making stock. - 27 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
