Recipe by: Frankie


whole chicken (about 6 pounds)
3 TBSP unsalted butter, softened
1 TBSP sweet paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp mustard powder


1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2. Pat the chicken dry and remove the giblets from the cavity.

3. In a small bowl mix together the softened butter and remaining ingredients until well combined.

4. Rub the butter mixture all over the chicken including under the skin and place the chicken breast-side up into a large cast-iron pan.

5. Place the chicken in the oven and roast for 45 minutes then take the chicken out of the oven and baste the chicken with any liquid in the bottom of the pan. Place the chicken back in the oven and roast for 30 to 45 more minutes (or until an internal temperature of at least 165°F).

6. Remove the chicken from the oven. Baste the chicken one last time then set aside to rest for 20 minutes before slicing and serving.
