Kentucky Roast Chicken

Our favourite lazy dinner of the moment is Kentucky Roast Chicken sandwiches (so called as the spices are an attempt to mimic the KFC ones).  Simply rub a whole chicken with a very well salted spice mix (I used smoked paprika, onion powder, cumin, oregano, pepper and garlic powder but you might want to experiment with your own mixture or try one of these) and roast until the skin is golden brown and crisp.  Whilst the chicken is still hot, tear off pieces of the meat and skin and pop into a crusty baguette along with some mayonnaise and leafy salad.

  1. While this sounds delicious, I can’t figure what it has to do with Kentucky. None of those flavors has anything to do with US (notice I didn’t say American) Southern cooking. I’m not trying to be mean but where did you get the notion that this was a dish from anywhere in the US, let alone the South. I doubt you could even find cumin or smoked paprika in smallville USA. On the flip side of stereotypes,you probably don’t sit around in kilts eating haggis every day. We all probably just go to McDonalds. Can we have a big international YUCK!!! With supersized fries and some soda, before it’s all banned. OOPS, I know I just went off on a tangent, but are they trying to tell you what to eat over there too?

  2. I’ve never eaten KFC , so can’t tell whether you’d have fooled the Colonel …. but it certainly looks finger-lickingly good , especially served like that !

  3. How lovely and nice naming of the recipe – I hadn’t heard of Kentucky Roast Chicken before either but looking at the comments above all is revealed 🙂

  5. This chicken looks entirely lovely and delicious. I love chicken sandwiches too and this one is just making my mouth water. I have a suggestion though, instead of mayonnaise you may want to try greek yogurt, it is delicious and healthier too!
