CAJUN ROASTED WHOLE CHICKEN

It does not get any easier, delicious or less expensive than preparing a Cajun Roasted Whole Chicken for dinner.

CAJUN ROASTED WHOLE CHICKEN

Whole chickens are cheaper than purchasing a chicken already cut up.  I buy 4 to 6  whole chickens when they are on sale.   For my family, 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 cook 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 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.

  1. Another way to roast a hen and keep it moist is in a crock pot. Just season that bird any way you like, a five pounder fits nicely in a 5-6 quart cooker, set it on high and 3-4 hours it should be around 180*. The only drawback is it doesn’t brown and crisp up the skin(bummer) so you could pop the bird in an oven at 400* and keep an eye on it. Now keep in mind I’m a dumb ole truck driver, next time I roast another bird in a slow cooker I’m going to take my heat gun and see if that will give that lil’ chick a quick tan. Watch my posts I come up with some crazy and unorthodox approaches in the galley. You see I like to knock back a few celebratory tipples so I get half crocked while I’m crockpottin’ (probably where I get these off the wall ideas, huh) L.D. …. jus’ dancin with the Devil in the kitchen. Bon Appetite! Adios n’ Hasta La Bye Bye!
