Mayonnaise Roasted Chicken
My last post was all about how much we love our Cafe Appliances but I thought what I needed to do was show you all, how I cook with them, and so today I am sharing one of my favorite recipes. It’s super easy and something I love to make for Brian.
It’s perfect for fall because what could be better then the smell of a yummy chicken roasting in your oven with a chill in the air outside.Like so many of my recipes, I found this one on Pinterest HERE and its been so good and super easy to make!
Ingredients list for the Oven Roasted Chicken
One 4lb. (2kg) whole chicken
Fresh thyme sprigs
Fresh sage sprigs
Salt and pepper
2 heads of garlic, sliced horizontally
1 red onion, halved
1 yellow onion, halved
The mayonnaise rub
1 cup mayonnaise
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon hot chili paste (we used Sriracha sauce)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon crushed fennel seeds
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and season generously with kosher salt inside and out. Tie the legs together with kitchen twine. Let sit 1 hour in the refrigerator to allow salt to penetrate the meat.Line halves of garlic head, sage, thyme, and onion halves in the bottom of the roasting pan and arrange chicken on top. Insert a couple onion halves, 2 halves of a garlic head, sage, and thyme into the chicken. Add some more veggies around the bird. Brush chicken generously on all sides with the white sauce and sprinkle with herbs and more black pepper.
Preheat your oven to 425°F (210°C) and lightly grease a baking dish or roasting pan
Roast chicken for 50-60 minutes, brushing chicken with the sauce every 15-20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast or thigh should register 165°F (73°C). As you often transfer chicken in and out of the oven for brushing, you may have to roast it a little longer to compensate the loss of temperature. I have loved our Cafe Appliance range more and more each time I use it. The Duel Fuel capability allows me to use the oven with ease because it is electric. That means that I am able to set it to the exact temperature I need without fussing with a oven thermometer like so many gas only ovens I have used. But the stove top is gas and so I am able to have the best of both worlds. The range has a timer which is crucial in my cooking. I am easily distracted which means I have burned dinner a time or two. I know this probably seems like a simple feature but so many professional ranges I researched didn’t have one! I also love that the range provides six large burners that easily go from simmer to max heat. I have never seen things bowl as fast as they do on this stove!I hope you love this recipe as much as our family and hopefully you’ll even have the opportunity to try it out on the Cafe range one of these days.
Now it’s time to eat!

We have been slowly working on the exterior of our home while we work on the interior. Needless to say, we are tired! The house is cedar shake from the 1940’s and I love it. We painted it a dark charcoal with black trim and a very light grey door and shutters. We need exterior … Read more
