Truly, it does not get any easier or less expensive than preparing a Cajun Roasted Whole Chicken for dinner. Whole chickens are less expensive than purchasing a chicken already cut up. I buy 4 to 6 whole chickens when they are on sale. I often prepare two chickens to feed my family. You will see two different chickens in these pictures. I know how to cut up a whole chicken to roast the individual pieces, but I rather just roast it whole. It is easier and absolutely delicious. I have several different seasonings blends I use to change the flavor of the chicken, but the Creole Butter Cajun Marinade injector with Cajun seasoning is our favorite way to roast a chicken. I wrote about preparing this simple Cajun Whole Chicken in an earlier post. In that post, I talked about preparing this same chicken in the crock-pot. The benefit of the crock-pot is you do not have to watch the chicken when it cooks. I also really like to roast this Cajun Whole Chicken in the oven when I have time. The chicken will still be super moist and the crust will be brown on the outside.
Whether you prepare this Cajun Roasted Whole Chicken in the crock-pot or the oven, you really need to add some green beans and potatoes around the bottom of the baking dish. The potatoes and green beans will soak up all the juices and flavors from the chicken. They are really terrific! While the chicken is cooling and being cut into pieces, my kids will pop a green bean or potato in their months constantly. I have to make my family stop eating their vegetables until we put the food on the table.
