What You Need

What To Do



  • Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F

  • Poke the breast several times with a knife, this is to prevent the skin from filling with steam while cooking

  • Rub the entire bird with Somersault

  • Turn the bird breast side down, and season with Red Dirt

  • Turn the bird over and season the rest of the chicken

  • There is no need to rub the Red Dirt into the chicken

  • Place on a baking sheet and roast at 450 degrees F

  • After 20 minutes, rotate the baking sheet and baste the entire bird with the oil and drippings from the bird

  • After 15 additional minutes, baste the entire bird again

  • After 10 additional minutes, check the internal temperature: you are trying to reach at least 160 degrees F in the breast, and 175 degrees F in the thickest part of the thigh, baste the entire bird

  • If needed, cook and baste every 5 minutes until you reach the proper internal temperature



  • Let the bird rest at least 10 minutes before carving

  • Eat as a main course, and use the leftovers to fix easy meals like tacos, or chicken salad

  • The bones make a great stock

  • Eat as Roast Chicken, use to make Soup or a Pot Pie, the possibilities are endless!

  • Enjoy!
