what spices plus good filling put on roast chicken?!
Well I love Lemon Pepper Chicken. It has just the right amount of tangy, and it is best when it has a lot of yummy spices on it. Here is a recipe similar to the one that I use: http://www.ehow.com/how_4406596_lemon-pe…
Garlic Chicken is also good. You could also spice it up a bit with jalepeno but that is an adventurous recipe. Here is a good recipe for Garlic Chicken: http://www.garlic-central.com/garlic-chi…
Veggie Chicken is yummy too. You could serve the chicken with a good stir fry: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/robin…

Baharat Middle Eastern Spice Mix Recipe
1/2 cup whole black peppercorns
1/4 cup whole coriander seed
1/4 cup cassia or cinnamon bark
1/4 cup whole cloves
1/3 cup cumin seed
2 teaspoons whole cardamom seeds
4 whole nutmegs
1/2 cup ground paprika
Basically, just place all the spices except the paprika & nutmeg in a blender or adequate grinder (coffee bean grinder works great) & process until it becomes a powder. If necessary you can grind 1/2 cup at a time. Grate the nutmeg & blend this with the paprika into the spices. Store in an airtight jar.
Generally in some areas, they lightly toast the spices in an oven to bring out more flavor. You can gain this also by putting the amount you're going to use, on a hot dry fry pan & toast it for a few seconds before using. This not only makes the kitchen smell good, but brings out a richer flavor of any spice. *Note* You can also use ground spices, but using them whole is the authentic way. Four nutmegs come to about 1/4 cup ground. Be careful how much nutmeg you use; it's toxic in large doses.
Makes 2 cups of spice mix.

I like to mix chicken broth with garlic salt and put it over my chicken. I also slice up a lemon and put it over it. I like broccoli and cheese rice to go with it. I am a big garlic fan so most of my cooking involves garlic. very good. but just my opinion its up to you. hope that helped.
