* Exported from MasterCook * Roast Sticky Chicken^ (w/comments) Recipe By : Busycooks@about.com (Lynn Nelson) Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00 Categories : Chicken Chicken - Raw Diet Freezer Freezer Meals Friendly-Freezer Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method -------- ------------ -------------------------------- 1 large chicken -- roasting 1 cup onion -- chopped 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon white pepper 1 teaspoon thyme 1 teaspoon onion powder 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper 2 teaspoons paprika 4 teaspoons salt In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices. Remove giblets from chicken, clean the cavity well and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the spice mixture into the chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly distributed and down deep into the skin. Place in a resealable plastic bag,seal and refrigerate overnight. When ready to roast chicken, stuff cavity with onions, and place in a shallow baking pan. Roast, uncovered, at 250 degrees F for 5 hours. After the first hour, baste chicken occasionally (every half hour or so) with pan juices.(It may take awhile to have pan juices) The pan juices will start to caramelize on the bottom of pan and the chicken will turn golden brown. If the chicken contains a pop-up thermometer, ignore it. Let chicken rest about 10 minutes before carving.

At the same time, I made up a bunch for myself. Just mixed all the spices together, put in a small bag and labelled. Now when I make it, I just grab a bag and go. Just a note - I wouldn't double or triple the recipe because of all the different spices. When you try to separate into bags, you wouldn't get the proper ratio of spices in each. I just laid out all my bags, and measured directly into each. For the small bags, I went to my bulk food store and the sweet lady sold me some 'cause I wanted my gift baskets to look professional. She sold me really tiny ones that she sells spices in." ~Debbie Ledger Q: " Also what should I do with all of those great juices in the bottom of the pan. Keep them and add to the broth after they are defatted?" A: "I would tell her not to put them into the broth because they are probably too spicy. When I make the whole roast sticky chicken, I often toss a bit of the drippings (WITH the fat) with some peeled and cut up potatoes and roast them. They're good, but you have to watch how much you use because the drippings are VERY spicy from the cayenne and other peppers." ~Lynn@Busycooks "Previous Posters' Notes: We love the sticky roast chicken recipe too. When whole chickens are on sale, I buy a bunch (4-6) and make a huge batch of the spice rub and assembly line rub the chicken. I double bag them and toss them in the freezer and can have sticky chicken whenever I want, without having to dig out all the spices and get my hands all messy everytime. I just pull out a chicken and thaw overnight and roast it the next day. Works great. Now as to doing a turkey, a few months ago I tried it on a very large (23+ pounds) turkey I had bought on sale last thanksgiving. It was a cheap storebrand turkey, and those usually dry out a bit on us too, so my husband suggested using the rub from the sticky chicken recipe. I forgot to do it the night before, so I just did it in the morning using a double recipe of the spices and popped it in the oven and cooked according to the regular directions for cooking turkey. We covered it with foil for the first part of roasting and then uncovered it near the end. It was delicious!! Very flavorful and moist. And to be on topic for OAMC, we had plenty of leftovers that I used in casseroles, to freeze. Hope this helps. This is one of the most popular recipes at our house. We love making it for company and it is EASY when the meal is ready to go in your freezer - just what OAMC is about!! Posted to Friendly Freezer by Debbie Leger NOTES: here's the recipe. You can rub it into the chicken and then freeze the chicken. But I prefer to package the spices into a little baggie and use the mix when ready. Debbie Leger Posted by Debbie Leger to ff digest 783 Q: My question is I would like to make the sticky chicken but I only have chicken parts not the whole chicken. Do you think it would work to thinly slice the onions, put them on the bottom of the roaster, and then lay the seasoned chicken parts on top? I'm going to do this tomorrow so any answers would be appreciated. A: did you do this and how did it turn out?? I think it should be fine but of course we want to know details!! Have a wonderful New Year, :o) ~Robbyn Snider Robbyn, The chicken turned out great!!!! I had a friend stop over while it was baking and she commented on how good the smell was. (I think you'll have another new subscriber soon. I keep passing on recipes from the list but now I think she wants to get them all!) Anyway I used 10 lbs. of chicken leg quarters. Last night I put the spice rub on them and put them in the fridge until this afternoon. I used my large turkey roaster as it's not only the largest pan I have but it's the only large one that would fit in my very small wall oven. I covered the bottom of the pan with thin onion slices, it took 1 large and two small onions but probably two medium onions would be enough, and then layed the chicken pieces on top. Some of them over lapped but it didn't seem to affect them any. I didn't get any juice for about 1 1/2 hours but once I did I basted every 1/2 hour as the recipe said. It took 2 1/2 to 3 hours to cook the 10 lbs. (I wasn't watching the clock when I put it in.) Question: I am going to debone the chicken to have it ready for other recipes. Can I throw all the bones back into a pan, cover with water and add onion, celery, and carrots to make a broth even though they are cooked. Also what should I do with all of those great juices in the bottom of the pan. Keep them and add to the broth after they are defatted? Thanks for your encouragement. Now you know that it's possible to have sticky chicken when you don't have the whole chicken! Susan in Illinois SAHM to Alex, 12, Aaron, 4, and DH of 17 yrs. Michael Q: Hi..would like to try the recipe but....when you say a large chicken, how many pounds do you mean? I have one in the fridge for lunch tomorrow but this 'large' chicken weighs 11 pounds...250ø for 5 hours would never get him cooked so... Thanks for your help Renate >> A: well I believe a "large" chicken is considered about 5 lbs or so.. so you would have to double the spices.. the time would probably be 7 hours instead of 5.. maybe a bit more.. Have a wonderful New Year, :o) Q> Can I cook Roastes Sticky Chicken in a Crockpot for summer? A> First, the oven temperature for this recipe is only 250 degrees, that shouldn't really heat up the kitchen. Use an oven thermometer to make sure your oven's thermostat is accurate. I've never made Sticky Chicken in the crockpot, but I wouldn't recommend it. It wouldn't be the same dish at all. The spices on the skin sort of caramelize during the low, long roasting, making a delicious crispy, chewy, sticky skin. The crockpot makes rubbery skin (IMO). I do cook chicken all the time in the crockpot, but mainly for the meat and broth. I've received so many questions about this recipe (can I use a turkey, can I cook it in the crockpot, can I cook it on the grill, can I use chicken parts, etc) that I should do a Sticky Chicken FAQ! LOL! Now if anyone has actually tried cooking it in the crockpot, could you share the results please? Thanks!

This one is quick, simple, freezes pretty well, and is a LOT better than the name implies. :-) * Exported from MasterCook * Gook Recipe By : Sandra Moyer Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00 Categories : American Casseroles Ground Meats Main Dishes Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method -------- ------------ -------------------------------- 1 lb ground beef 10 oz frozen peas -- thawed* 1 can cream of mushroom soup, condensed 1 med onion -- chopped 1/2 tsp minced garlic salt and pepper 6 oz egg noodles -- cooked and drained Brown ground beef with onion and garlic.

Thin with milk if necessary. *You can also use a can of peas, drained Serves 6-8, depending on appetite. TO FREEZE: Do not add noodles. Freeze the meat-pea-soup mixture. Thaw in refrigerator overnight. Put in saucepan. Stir in cooked egg noodles. (6 oz. is the size bag I buy. If you're heating up 1/2 recipe, use 3 oz., etc.) Season to taste. Thin with milk if necessary (it probably will be). - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - NOTES : This recipe is a staple of my childhood. When I was a kid, my mother often found herself trying to come up with something using the items in her pantry--especially at the end of the month, right before payday! She threw this together one night, and it was a hit. When we asked her what it was, she had no idea...."I don't know, just some gook." The name stuck, much to the dismay of any non-family member who was served it!
