DIRECTIONS

  1. Season inside of bird with spice blend, and shove herbs into the cavity
  2. Season the outside well with the spice
    blend, an even coating.
  3. Put on spit, and roast until golden
    brown, and the temperature at the
    thickest part of the thigh is 165º.
  4. While chicken is roasting, in medium
    size pot, on medium heat, put butter
    to melt, add vegetables, cook until
    onions become translucent.
  5. Add mushrooms, garlic and shallots,
    cook 2 minutes.
  6. Add rice, mix around, season with salt
    and pepper.
  7. Add stock/broth and stir, check
    seasoning to ensure it’s flavorful.
    Season the liquid, if needed, as that
    will be the flavor of the rice once it’s
    done cooking.
  8. Put on the lid, turn to low heat, and
    cook until all water is absorbed, about
    20 minutes.
  9. Remove lid, stir, adjust seasonings.
