1 whole chicken – about 5 lbs.

Rub for the chicken skin:

Dashes of ground oregano
Dashes of salt
Dashes of black pepper
Dashes of garlic powder
1 tsp. of sugar
Drizzle of olive oil

Combine all of the seasonings in a small dish and drizzle with olive oil to form a paste.  Rub all over the skin.

3 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon of orange marmalade
2 cloves of garlic
Healthy handful of fresh basil
Dash of salt
Dash of black pepper

Place the butter and all of the other ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.

Gently lift the skin and rub this butter all over, under the skin.

Preheat Oven 375:

Place the prepared chicken in a baking pan.

Bake 55-60 minutes or until the juices of the chicken run clear.

This is a juicy and delicious chicken.

Oven Roasted Red Peppers:

3 red bell peppers – sliced
½ Spanish onion – sliced
4 cloves of garlic – chopped
