Mildly spiced and slightly sweet chicken that comes out moist and tasty.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon mild paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (3 1/2) pound whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Combine the paprika, parsley, sugar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. 2 Place the chicken pieces in a 9x13 inch baking dish, and coat with the vegetable oil; arrange skin-side up. Sprinkle evenly with the spice mixture.
  3. 3 Bake the chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  1. Amazing mix of flavors. I cut the salt in half and doubled the brown sugar. Perfect! So many flavors. It makes my mouth water thinking about it:)
  2. "Mildly spiced" is right. Mild to the point of forgettable. It tasted like plain chicken. Not unseasoned necessarily but no defined taste either. Yes I did reduce the paprika. I mixed spices as listed all I could smell is paprika. I'll be using leftovers for something else. Sorry I heated up the house for this - Read more ...
  3. This is an easy and delicious way to cook bone in chicken. I didn't make any changes to the recipe. It turned out so moist and flavorful! My family loved it.
  4. This was just okay for me. The paprika was too strong and it was a little oversweetened I think. Next time I'm going to cut the sugar in half and add some other spices - rosemary basil and a dash of Oregano for sure.
  5. Great recipe! This is a keeper - everyone in the family loved it. My key changes: 1. Increased brown sugar to 3 1/2 tsp 2. Reduced salt to 1 1/2 tsp (will try a bit less next time as well) 3. Made GRAVY from the juices. I sprinkled 40% of the rub on the bottom - Read more ...
  6. Delish! My youngest pickiest eater said "this is how you make chicken mom". It was easy juicy economical & delish. My husband can't have sugar or salt so I just used a very small sprinkle of brown sugar & replaced the salt with garlic & onion powder. I also turned the chicken to coat on - Read more ...
  7. This is delicious. I used chicken legs. I brushed each with a small amount of oil and then rolled in the spices. So easy and what a kick!
  8. This was tasty and different. Next time I will half the amounts because it made a lot of spice mixture. Sweet and savory and made a very moist chicken. Thanks for sharing.
  9. I cooked this for a sunday dinner because it was easy and you just pop it in the oven while your dressing for church. My family really liked it and my husband don't care too much for baked chicken. The only thing I feel it needs different is too cut back on the paprika. It's - Read more ...
