Spiced Rubbed Whole Chicken


  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbs chili powder
  • 2 tbs ground coriander
  • 1 tbs dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbs dried oregano
  • 4 tbs smoked paprika
  • 3 tbs kosher salt
  • 1 tbs white pepper

This is a delicious way to prepare a whole chicken. The chicken is rubbed with herbs and spices then either baked or cook over charcoal.

  • Wash and dry the chicken, inside and out.
  • Add all of the rub mixture to a bowl and combine well.
  • Rub the chicken heavily all over with the rub mixture inside and out, then cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  • Bake the chicken in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 1 hour or until cooked through.
  • Alternatively you may cook the chicken over charcoal, using indirect heat. Meaning coals off to the side and the chicken not directly over the coals.
