Orange, sage, garlic, cumin, thyme, smoked paprika and a little brown sugar make this chicken perfectly golden brown and crisp on the outside while super tender and juicy on the inside. Unbelievably delicious and so simple.

2 garlic clove, smashed
1t salt
1t garlic powder
1T sage
1/2t cumin
1/2t thyme
1/4t smoked paprika
1/4t black pepper
1/8t red pepper flakes
1t brown sugar
1-2T olive oil
1 halved chicken


Preheat oven to 350°F. In the middle of a large baking dish, make a bed for the chicken with the orange and garlic, set aside. Stir together salt, garlic powder, sage, cumin thyme, smoked paprika, black pepper, red pepper flakes and brown sugar then sprinkle liberally all over the chicken on all sides, then place the chicken on top of the oranges. Drizzle the top with a little olive oil. Bake for 50-60 minutes and let rest for 10-20 minutes.
