Five Spice Roast Chicken

Submitted by: LADYPHOENIX61

Introduction

Taken from Epicurious. I love the flavor of 5 spice seasoning and this is going to be my Easter chicken! The recipe says to use a cut up chicken but I'm going to roast it whole on a rotisserie with the onion stuffed inside. Also, rub some seasoning on the inside of the chicken for extra flavor. The best 5 spice powder I've found is an Asian blend in a pouch at an Asian food store. The brand name is Lobo. It's sodium and sugar free and only .85 cents a pack with enough for at least 50 uses!
