4. After you have rubbed all of the seasoning generously on the chicken, bake the maple roasted chicken in a roasting pan in an oven preheated to 400 degrees.

5. After the first 20 minutes, reduce the heat to 375 and remove the chicken from the oven to baste it. Pour some of the chicken's drippings on top of the chicken so that it does not get dried out and burned at the top while cooking. At this point, also take 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and spread on the chicken skin with a glazing brush.

6. Return the chicken to the oven and after an additional 20 minutes of cooking time, reduce the heat once more, now to 350.

Remove the maple roasted chicken from the oven again and glaze once more with another 1 tablespoon of maple syrup.

7. Return the maple roasted chicken to the oven and after 50-60 more minutes remove.

This slow roasting process will make the maple roasted chicken very tender and delicious.

Total time in the oven for a 6-7 pound maple roasted chicken is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Spread the maple syrup on to the chicken skin with a glazing brush.
