Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a small bowl, combine the softened butter, granulated garlic, paprika, oregano, onion powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
Rub the chicken all over with the butter mixture.
Stuff the cavity with 1/2 an onion, wrap the chicken legs with kitchen twine, and tuck in the chicken wings.
