  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning heaped
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 kg whole chicken deskinned, cleaned and patted dry


  • In a large bowl, mix the ingredients from taco seasoning to olive oil. Add the chicken and rub all over including the cavities. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Transfer the chicken with all marinade into a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes on one side.
  • Take out the tray, flip the chicken and bake for another 20 minutes or when juices run.
  • Turn the setting to "grill" and grill for a couple of minutes or just till a charred appearance comes. Do not overdo - may dry up the chicken.
  • Enjoy with a salad and bread of your choice.
