"Let us" Roast Chicken

At first glance you're going to think we've made a mistake in these directions - cover a chicken with lettuce leaves?! Yup! The lettuce helps hold in the moisture and keeps the spices from burning. It actually acts like the skin when the chicken roast is finished.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 whole chicken (2½ to 3 pounds), skin removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 large iceberg lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place chicken breast side up in baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients except the lettuce; mix well. Rub chicken evenly with spice mixture, then lay lettuce leaves over the top, curving it around and completely covering chicken.
  3. Bake 65 to 70 minutes, or until juices run clear and no pink remains. Discard lettuce leaves before serving.
