    1/2 cup all-purpose flour 125 mL
    2 tsp kosher salt 10 mL
    1-1/2 tsp garlic powder 7 mL
    1 tsp paprika 5 mL
    1/2 tsp pepper 2 mL
    1/4 tsp dry mustard 1 mL

In shallow dish, mix together flour, 1 tsp (5 mL) of the salt, the garlic powder, paprika, pepper and mustard. Rinse chicken under water; sprinkle with remaining salt. One piece at a time, coat chicken in flour mixture. Place on greased rimmed baking sheet.

Roast in 375°F (190°C) oven, basting occasionally with pan drippings, until golden and juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 1 hour.
