    Delicious!! I’m going to pair it with some good mashed taters and early peas. This chicken is SOOO GOOD! 😋My hubby couldn’t wait to taste it! That’s why a wing is missing. He took it off even before I checked the temp when I got it out the oven! Thank You for posting this recipe! I’m cooking more during this pandemic. 😆😂🤣

    This was amazing, my whole family loved the little kick of spice. We made chicken noodle soup the next day with the leftovers which were also amazing.

    Clean chicken of excess fat and clear out the cavity of the chicken. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Coat entire chicken with olive oil, then season generously with Slap Ya Mama Original Blend seasoning, outside and inside of chicken. Stuff lemons, onions, bell peppers, garlic, thyme and butter into the chicken cavity. Using cotton string, tie the legs together tightly. Place in a shallow roasting pan or cast iron skillet and roast at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, occasionally basting with juices from bottom of the pan or skillet. Reduce heat to 325 degrees and continue roasting for 1 hour, occasionally basting with juices. Internal temperature should register 165 degrees in the meaty part of the thigh using a meat thermometer. Carve and enjoy!

    I actually used limes instead of lemons and also added more bell peper. I loved how it turned out and so did my family. I will be making it again!

    Didn’t have any bell pepper but I cubed onions and zucchini from my garden to fill out the baking dish the chicken was in. Was SOOOO good we didn’t have any leftovers. I love slap your mama and for those that don’t like the heat there was no heat left when it was done cooking. I sprinkle a little more on after just to taste. What is very good and I will make it again

    Great!!! I hate garlic, so, don't use it. Rub some butter on it. The rest is the same. Delicious!!!

    Sooo good! I put garlic under the skin and injected it with butter. I did not have the rub so I made my own based on the ingredients. Easy and delicious!
