Finger Paint To Coat Your Poultry

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Poultry, Low Calorie, Condiments

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Paprika
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion; dried
  • Pepper
  • Water; to make paste
  • --LIKE a thick finger paint


This will do about a 12lb turkey. Cut the amounts in half for a roasting
chicken. Other seasonings are to taste. I never did measure.

Here is a coating you can put on all poultry before roasting. Basically you
make a paste of the above ingredients. It should be the consistency of
finger paint; thick and not runny. If you have kids, put them in old
clothes and let them help. I smear it in and out of the cavity. Notice that
this does not have any Gravy Master or oil; both unneeded in my opinion.
The skin cooks nice and crisp. Remember to baste during cooking.

BTW, use this in the Nuke too. Sometimes we do a turkey or chicken in there
when we have lot's of other baking/roasting to do. When Howard was in
training to be a Chef, he brought home a bunch of fellow students for
dinner. Not one of them even came close to guessing that the turkey had
been made in the nuke.

Since this has no added fat; (no usual added butter or oil); it helps keep
the turkey moist without adding calories. I have done this on skinless
breasts too. It adds minimal 'calorically'.

I simply roast the chicken/or turkey the normal way (usually with a
stuffing). The skin is crisp and good (but probably not for you).
