Truly, it does not get any easier or less expensive than preparing a Cajun Roasted Whole Chicken for dinner.
Whole chickens are cheaper 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. 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 delicious. I use different seasonings blends to change the flavor of the chicken. The Creole Butter Cajun Marinade Injector with Cajun seasoning is our favorite way to roast a chicken. I simply love this Cajun Roasted Whole Chicken; sometimes I even prepare it in my crock-pot. See earlier post on how to do it. 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 crockpot or the oven, you 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 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 cooked with this Cajun Roasted Chicken until we put the food on the table.
