This high-heat roasting method results in crisp, crackly skin that gives way to moist chicken and herbed garlic yumminess!

Did you know... If you're looking for a great source of protein, this bird is the word! Chicken is high in protein and jam-packed full of essential nutrients and vitamins.

Pairs well with roasted vegetables. However, I would recommend roasting the vegetables in a separate oven if you have one available. This way, the chicken stays nice & crispy!
Adjust serving size: 


  • 2 bone in skin on chicken - leg & thigh combos or breast
  • Roasted Chicken Garlic Rub
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

How to Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° convection and place rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Prepare the rub by adding all of the ingredients into a small mixing bowl and stir until a nice paste forms.
  3. Rinse the chicken, pat it dry, and then place it onto an oven-safe baking rack set over a baking sheet.
  4. Rub a light coat of the paste all over the chicken - get it under the skin too!
  5. Place the chicken back onto the rack, skin-side up, then roast at 400° convection for 20 minutes, adjust the temperature to 400° regular and continue roasting for another 20 minutes.
  6. Upon removing from the oven, the chicken should have a nice crispy skin. The best way to make sure the chicken is done is to use an instant-read thermometer. It should read 165° when inserted into the thickest part.


If you do not have a convection oven, you can roast at 400° for the entire 40 minutes.
