Roast Chicken with Carrots and Zucchini

Giora Shimoni
Roast chicken proves that sometimes simple is better. Simply mix spices, coat chicken and then bake uncovered in the oven. You can make preparation and serving even easier by buying a chicken cut into eighths. The result is a moist and flavorful chicken entree that everyone will love.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Very easy recipe, delicious, and scrumptious. Left-overs taste even better. I have made this recipe few times already and every body in my family is in love with it.
