Simple Herb Roasted Sazón Chicken

Looking for an easy way to get dinner done in a flash? Try this herb roasted sazón chicken. Now everyone knows one of my favorite ways to eat chicken besides frying it is simply tossing it in the oven. I’ve developed a fast and easy way to season with a homemade sazón and get a delicious oven roasted chicken. I even added a little honey at the end for a little razzle dazzle. Now there’s nothing wrong with store bought seasonings, trust me, they’re lifesaver. They cut down on time & effort but when you can, make your own seasonings. The added artificial ingredients give the seasonings a different taste and if you’re trying to keep your health in mind, homemade food and homemade seasonings is the way to go! Check out this quick and easy oven roasted sazón chicken I made and let me know what you think. It’s the the perfect blend of wet and dry seasonings and is packed with flavor. I used a generous heaping of epis, which is a green seasoning made from fresh onions, peppers, parsley, and cilantro. It may be known to others as sofrito or green seasoning. There is a video on my youtube channel for how I make this!

Here is the recipe for my oven roasted sazón chicken:

•7 chicken quarters

•1 1/2 tsp all purpose seasoning

•1 tsp chicken/poultry seasoning

•2 tsp homemade sazón seasoning (recipe is here on my site)

•1 large spoonful or approximately 10 tbsp of epis/green seasoning (see youtube video at thatnursecancook)

•3 tbsp Honey (optional)


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Farenheit. I removed the skin from the chicken, but you can leave it on if you please. Add all your ingredients except for the honey if you’re using it and massage it all into the chicken. Arrange the chicken onto a baking dish and place inside the oven uncovered for 1 hour 15 minutes, making sure to baste the chicken with its own juices every 20-30 minutes. After 1 hour and 15 minutes, take the chicken out, baste it, drizzle honey on top of the chicken (if you please), and then raise the temperature on your oven to 400 degrees Farenheit. This will help give your chicken a nice brown color. Place the chicken back into the oven for another 15 minutes, remove, and enjoy!
