The Hippie Gold rub is a blend of fragrant turmeric, rosemary, and thyme. These flavors go great with a classic roasted chicken and the golden color adds a nice visual too.

Chef's Tip

If you are in a hurry, preheat the cast-iron skillet to speed things up a little. 


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Rinse the bird and pat dry.
  3. Brush the bird with a little olive oil to help the seasoning stick.
  4. Cover the entire chicken with the rub and ensure that all external areas are well covered.
  5. Toss the potatoes and garlic in a little oil and season with salt.
  6. Place the chicken in the center of cast iron skillet, nestle the potatoes and garlic around it.
  7. Set the skillet in the oven and roast for about an hour. Check if it’s done by inserting a thermometer in the thickest part of the leg, it’s ready when the chicken reaches an internal temp of 165°F.
  8. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before carving.

*Keep a spray bottle of water handy in case of flare-ups.
