Don’t let the simplicity of one of our most famous recipes fool you. This bad bird packs a powerful flavorful punch. Simply coat a whole chicken with Traeger’s Chicken Rub and cook for just over an hour. That’s all you’ll need to do for chicken perfection.

Ingredients

  • 1 (about 4 lbs) Whole Chicken
  • 1 (about 4 lbs) Whole Chicken

Preparation

Remove the neck and gizzards from the cavity of the bird. Rinse and wipe the outside and inside of the chicken with a paper towel.

Lightly season the inside and outside of the chicken with Traeger Chicken Rub.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to High (set to 425 degrees F if using a WiFIRE-enabled grill) and preheat lid closed, for 10 minutes.

Place chicken on the grill and cook until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F in the breast, about 70 minutes.

Let bird rest 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
