Cutting up a whole chicken is both economical and easy. Here, the pieces are simply tossed with spices and sweet onion before going into the oven.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 whole chicken (about 3 1/2 pounds), cut into serving pieces
  • 1 sweet onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges

Directions

Preheat oven to 500°F with rack in upper third.

Mix oil with spices, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl, then add chicken and onion, tossing to coat. Arrange chicken, skin side up, and onion in a 3-quart shallow baking dish.

Bake until chicken is just cooked through and skin is golden, about 30 minutes. Skim any fat from pan juices in dish.
