The other day, Jenna did a post on her honey barbecue chicken.
That was it. I was hooked. I had to make a roasted chicken.
I ran to the basement…yesss, a bird was just waiting to be massaged with spice rub goodness.
My spice rub of choice?
Dinosaur’s Cajun Foreplay.
My entire family is obsessed.We had Dinosaur Bar-B-Que years ago when my cousin got married at Colgate University and they catered the rehearsal dinner. The barbecue salmon was out of this worrrrrrrrld….
Back to the bird.
So – I didn’t have honey (used it all…here), but that’s okay.
I stuffed the cavity with an entire lemon (halved) and 3 cloves of garlic. Seasoned the thing with salt, pepper…smothered it in about a tablespoon of olive oil and then liberally rubbed the Cajun Foreplay allll ovahh.
375 and about 1.5 hours later….a crispy, spicy, smokey, & sweet bird emerged.
