Delicious Roasted Chicken


1 large whole chicken

1 large onion, chopped

dash of: rosemary, basil, thyme, oregano

seasoning salt


3 to 4 T butter, melted


Wash whole chicken and set aside.  In a small bowl combine chopped onion and spices.  Stuff this into cavity of chicken.  Set on rack in baking pan or roaster pan.  Sprinkle top with seasoning salt, salt and pepper, and brush melted butter over all.


Bake at 325.  Baste with butter as the chicken cooks.  Bake for 3 to 4 hours, depending on size of chicken until the skin is crisp and the chicken is done. 


You don’t eat the onions, it just helps to add flavor to the chicken meat.  This tastes delicious!! 


Serve with potatoes (cooked as desired), buttermilk biscuits and a veggie or salad.
