Migraine delayed entry

Good morning!  Sorry for the lateness of my Monday recipe, but Sunday and Monday pretty much had me gone with the pain of a migraine.  But it is gone now and here is my recipe.  I got this one in the mail from SparkPeople.com.

If your looking for something good on carbs, fat and calories...check out the nutritional info below the recipe.  Hmm, looks like something I should be eating for breakfast, lunch and dinner, lol.

Sticky Chicken
Serves: 4
This roasted chicken gets its sticky coating from the juices it releases while being baked.


1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 ready-to-cook 1 lb. roasting chicken
1 cup chopped onion


1. In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices.
2. Remove giblets from chicken; clean the cavity well and pat dry with paper towels.
3. Rub the spice mixture into the chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly distributed and down deep into the skin.
4. Place in a re-sealable plastic bag, seal and refrigerate overnight.
5. When ready to roast chicken, stuff cavity with onions, and place in a shallow baking pan.
6. Roast, uncovered, at 250° F for 5 hours. After the first hour, baste the chicken occasionally (every half hour or so) with pan juices. The pan juice will start to caramelize on the bottom of the pan and the chicken will turn golden brown. If the chicken contains a pop-up thermometer, ignore it.
7. Let chicken rest about 10 minutes before carving.

A cleaning tip, or two, that you may find useful.  As I say on my Web page, these are tips that have been emailed to me, or that I have found on the Internet.  I have not tried all of them and do NOT guarantee their effectiveness.  If you do try one and it works, or if you have another one that works for you, let me know.

General Stain Removal for Clothing: Read the label! If it says dry-clean only, dry-clean it. If it's washable, try cleaning fluid, spot remover, or petroleum-based pre-wash spray. Place garment stain side down on paper towels and dab cleaner on stain using a terry-cloth towel or scrub brush. Check paper towels underneath and move frequently so there's always a clean area under the stain to absorb soil. Let area dry and check it. If stain remains, treat with prewash spray and launder. Before drying, check again. Still visible? Repeat steps.


Have a wonderful week!
