Easy Roasted Chicken

Who else struggles with finding a variety of options to bring for those pesky work day lunches?! I know I do! I wanted to make chicken salad this week but not from a can or an already cooked chicken. I also didn’t want to spend a great deal of money, so I came up with this amazing recipe!

I had this turned into Avocado Chicken Salad today for lunch and let me tell you, it’s delicious! It costs $11 to make and makes 4 servings. Pair it with a side of veggies or whatever else you’d like!

First things first, we have to roast the chicken! Part 2 . . comes next . . which’s the chicken salad part. You can eat this roasted chicken as is or turn it into a chicken salad, like the recipe coming next! I wanted to post this in 2 parts in case you wanted to eat one separately from the other! 🙂

Roasted Chicken


  • 1 whole uncooked roasted chicken
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons of himalayan salt
  • 3 tablespoons of smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons of cracked pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of sodium free garlic salt



  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  2. Take the roasted chicken out of the plastic wrapping and rise thoroughly
  3. Next, place the entire chicken in a roasting pan that’s been lined with foil and nonstick cooking spray (side note: take out the insides, which should be in a bag; throw that away)
  4. Next, pour on the olive oil over the entire chicken
  5. Now you’ll want to add all the dry ingredients on top of the chicken and massage until it’s covering the entire thing
  6. Lastly, bake uncovered for 1 hour at 400 degrees or until at the crisp you’d like

That’s it! How easy is that?! Part two coming next . . how to turn that amazing roasted chicken into Avocado Chicken Salad!
