Sticky Chicken (that isn't sticky) - It's a Wonderful and CRAZY Life!

It's been a few days, I know. Sometimes life just gets busy and I need to remember my priorities. As much as I love blogging, I know there are times when I have to get papers graded and laundry done and dinners cooked. With all of the snow we had over the last month, classes were a bit sporadic and I guess I had a little more time on my hands than usual. This week was back to the steady grind. We even had church on Wednesday night, which we had missed the previous week. It is good to be in a routine, but it reminds me how little time I actually have that is just mine to do with as I choose. Between being a mom and wife, I have to teach classes to about 120 students, most of which turn in pesky essays every week that need grading :) It is also time to start putting together both the Easter musical at church and the CHET drama performance...more on the script chosen as soon as I let the kids know ... but it is going to be lots of fun!

Tuesday night's dinner was Sticky Chicken. It is really not sticky, so I don't know how it got that name, but it is very good. When it is not on a Tuesday and I make it in the oven, I make two. This week I put it in the crockpot and came home to dinner all ready because David cooked the rice and the vegetable. It is simple and easy and delicious!! It reminds me of the rotisserie chickens that you get in the deli case at the grocery store.


For each 4-5 lb. whole chicken you will need the following spices (if you are doing 2, double the amounts):
2T paprika
1 T. garlic powder
1 T. onion powder
1 T. thyme leaves
1 T. salt
1/2 T. white pepper

Combine the dry ingredients and then coat the chicken well. Place in a ziploc bag and put in the fridge overnight, or a minimum of 6 hours. Heat the oven to 250'. Place a whole peeled onion in the cavity of the chicken and roast for 5 hours, uncovered. Yes, 5 hours at 250'. It takes some time, but worth the wait. You can do the same thing on low in a crockpot. Either way, it is delicious!!

I'm on the run. Maybe some more entries this weekend...after I grade papers :)
