Sunday Slow Suppers #1: Smoked Paprika Roasted Chicken

I am happy to be participating in the Slow Travel Sunday Supper Group as I am always looking for new dinner recipes. Like many people, I get tired of cooking the same things! This week's recipe was selected by Amy whose Blog is Destination Anywhere. I have been looking forward to trying this recipe:

(1) 4-5 lb. Roasting Chicken - rinsed and patted dry very well.

Pre-heat oven to 325.

2 T Smoked Paprika
2 T Honey
1 T Lemon Juice
1 T Butter,softened
1 t salt
1t garlic powder
1/2 t pepper
1 onion,quartered

Mix together the first 7 ingredients. Spread over entire surface of chicken & place in a shallow roasting pan. Sprinkle some paprika in the cavity along with the onions.

Bake for about 1 1/4 hours til juices run clear when knife is inserted in breast & thigh. You might want to cover with foil for part of time so the chicken doesn't dry out.

Let rest for five minutes before slicing.

This recipe is definitely a keeper and one that I will make again! My chicken was 6 lbs. and took about 2 hours to finish (last 15 minutes at 375,uncovered). Not sure why my chicken split. Perhaps I should have tied the legs &/or used a smaller pan??

Your chicken looks great! Next time I am going to include veggies in the roasting pan too. I love one-dish meals!


Sheri, this looks good. I'll do it this week. Yummy!


I bet the vegetables, i.e. carrots tasted great cooked in the juices. I wonder why the split.


Glad you liked it!

I love the bright red color.

Looks delicious. A 6lb roaster chicken is a big bird!

It looks delicious! Love the color the paprika gave it.
