It’s always a great idea to have a roasted chicken ready for tacos!


  • 1 large (4.5 pounds) whole chicken
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 t black pepper
  • 1 t onion powder
  • 1 T red chili powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Rinse chicken inside and out with cold water and pat dry.
  3. Combine all the spices in a small bowl.
  4. Place chicken in a roasting pan and use your hands to season generously with the spices, including inside the chicken.
  5. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Check for doneness with a meat thermometer until it reads 160 to 165 degrees F.
  6. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Remove skin before serving.
