- 4-6 lb pound whole chicken
- 1 T soft butter
- chili powder
- garlic powder
- ground cumin
- 1 head of garlic, sliced crosswise
- 2 or 3 leeks, sliced 1 inch slices
- 2 fennel bulbs, cut in half & sliced in wedges
- olive oil
- 2 lbs baby potatoes
Toss veggies in a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Add to a roasting pan.
Spread butter on the bird. Shake on seasonings liberally to form a nice crust. Insert garlic into the cavity. Put the hen in the middle of the roasting pan surrounded by veggies.
Pop that baby in a 400 degree oven for about 1 1/2 hours.
