Dutch Oven Whole Chicken with Potatoes & Carrots

Soft tender Whole Chicken that is melting with delicious juices and succulent flavors. The Dutch oven is a simple old fashioned one pot cooking approach that locks in flavor and maintains texture when following a good recipe like this one. Here the carrots make for a sweet treat and the moist potatoes help stuff away the hunger. I love to pull the lid off like I am presenting a master piece for consumption but this is one of my favorite easy to follow methods of cooking. My family eats a lot of chicken and this little bird however tasty was devoured pretty fast.

In a small bowl: combine all the seasoning ingredients together and set aside. Remove the neck, giblets and package.
