Sticky Chicken

This is one of our favorite Sunday meals. It is so easy. You will never buy a store bought rotisserie chicken again. We like to serve it up with whipped sweet potatoes, homemade rolls and fresh corn.

4 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 onion quartered
1 4 pound whole chicken

in small bowl combine all spices.Remove and discard giblets from chicken. Rinse chicken cavity, pat dry with paper towels. Rub chicken inside and out with spice mixture. Place onion in cavity. Wrap in plastic wrap or in large ziploc bag. Place in fridge overnight. Remove plastic and place in shallow glass pan. Bake uncovered 250 degrees 4-5 hours. Great to put in right before church.

This is by far my favorite pizza recipes. You can add whatever toppings you like. Or even make a BBQ chicken pizza. Very good. Alot cheaper than store bought.

4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp yeast
1 ½ tsp salt
1 ½ cups warm water
2 TBS vegetable oil
Combine 2 cups of flour with yeast and salt in large bowl. Stir in warm water and oil. Beat with mixer until smooth. Gradualy stir in enough remaining flour to make stiff dough. Knead until smooth and elastic about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl. Let rise until double in bulk, about 1 hour.
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1 tsp salt
½ tsp sugar
1 ½ tsp dried basil
1 ½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp dried rosemary
1/8 tsp pepper
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Pour into saucepan, bring to boil, cook covered on medium/low heat for 10 minutes.

Bake on pizza stone 475 for 30minutes.

For bbq pizza use bbq sauce and cooked shredded chicken mixed with bbq sauce and red onions and cheese.
