Oven Smoked Spiced Chicken

Oven Smoked Spiced Chicken

Am I the best cook, probably not. However I do like to eat, and that means experimenting in the kitchen from time to time. I was on one of my favorite recipe groups,and someone had made a smoked chicken.

That chicken, well it looked smashing. Smoky on the inside, a skin that was burnished and ready to be devoured. So since I do not have a grill or a smoker, I thought what could I do to have a tasty smoked chicken full of flavor?

This is what I came up with, pretty delectable I think.  Plus my family told me so. (smile)


  • 1 whole chicken
  • sea salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon shata wet spice  (Farming Mama sent me some, but you can find a recipe here
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tsps liquid smoke Lazy Kettle All-Natural Liquid Smoke
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil coconut oil (divided)

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place chicken in a roasting pan, and season liberally inside and out with salt & pepper. Sprinkle the entire outside, and cavity with onion powder, cumin, smoked paprika, and garlic powder.
  3. Place 3 tablespoons of the coconut oil in the chicken cavity. Arrange remaining coconut oil in the pan around the outside of the chicken. Put the shata spice inside chicken cavity.
  4. Add liquid smoke to broth, stir, then pour 1/2 of the mixture into the chicken cavity and the remainder over the chicken.
  5. Bake uncovered  ~1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours~ depending on size of your chicken in the preheated oven.  Baste with the drippings every 20 minutes. Remove from heat, and baste with the rest of  the pan drippings.
  6. Cover with foil, and allow to rest about 30 minutes before serving.  Enjoy!
