Easy Buffalo Roast Chicken

Buffalo Cheddar Roast Chicken


  • 5-6 pound whole chicken
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil for drizzling
  • 1/4 cup buffalo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Combine all your spice ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
  3. Remove anything from the cavity of the chicken and rinse with water, pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Place the chicken on a clean work surface and sprinkle half the seasonings on the chicken and rub it on so that it is coated evenly, flip the chicken and repeat.
  5. Place the chicken in a medium size oven proof skillet (I used cast iron) or baking dish.
  6. Drizzle olive oil over the chicken and rub it on so it is coated well.
  7. Cook for 45 minutes, check the internal temperature and remove from the oven when it reaches 160 degrees.
  8. **Cooking times WILL vary depending on how big your chicken is, how many other items are in your oven, etc. Rely on a meat thermometer to know when your chicken is done.**
  9. While the chicken is cooking combine the buffalo sauce and apple cider vinegar over medium high heat until it begins to simmer. Reduce heat to low for 10-15 minutes and set aside for brushing.
  10. When the chicken is done brush with buffalo sauce and enjoy.
