How to Make Roasted Chicken with Potatoes 

A whole baked chicken is a nourishing comfort meal everyone should make.

  • Start by chopping potatoes and butternut squash. I find it easier to buy precut squash. Place them in your dutch oven and toss them in olive oil and spices, set aside.  

  • Next get a 3 – 3.5-pound chicken. Remove giblets inside the chicken cavity. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Try to dry the skin as much as possible it will create crispier skin.
  • Place the chicken breast side up on a wire rack with a baking sheet under it.
  • Add salt inside the chicken cavity. Then brush the entire chicken with melted butter and rub minced garlic all over.  
  • Place lemon, onion garlic, and oregano sprigs inside the chicken cavity.
  • In a small bowl combine garlic powder, onion salt, oregano, smoked paprika, and salt. Rub this seasoning onto the chicken, then place chicken on top of potatoes. 

  • Roast chicken uncovered.
