The BEST Roast Chicken

Gather around and enjoy the best roast chicken you'll ever make and eat!

Ingredients-

  • 1 whole bird { I prefer Bell & Evans}

  • 1 lemon

  • Poultry Blend of fresh herbs

  • Thyme-rosemary-sage

  • Fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • Medium to small potatoes / multi-colored are fun

  • 1 sweet onion

  • 4 carrots

  • 2 large celery stalks

  • ½ to 1 stick of butter to taste

  • Olive oil

  • Kosher salt & coarse black pepper

Instructions -

  • Heat oven to 400

  • Make a rack on the bottom of large roasting pan{tin foil is great, you can toss when done} with carrots and celery. Halve carrots, these will roast & be part of your side dish with potatoes & onions.

  • S&P cavity of bird and stuff with !/2of lemon small bundle of all herbs then plug w/other ½ lemons.

  • Place the bird on the rack of veg, place onion sliced into 4 wedges in corners of the pan. Cut potatoes in half and place around the bird.

  • Take butter, approximately ½ tsp of each herb{removed from stems and finely chop all together.

  • The addition of some kosher salt on your cutting board will assist in this process. You will get a nice fine chop.

  • Mix into butter with a generous pinch of salt & pepper. The chicken & potatoes need salt! Massage butter mixture all over the skin & get potatoes if you can. Hit any dry areas with a drizzle of olive oil. Natural birds have no fat & you will want a nice lemony gravy.

  • Cook for 1 hour, halfway through baste with nieces gently not to knock off your herb rub.

  • When your drumstick will wiggle free with some pressure your birds is done!

  • Let rest for at least 15 minutes before you slice into it for juices to settle for juiciest results. It will stay super hot!

  • Serve with crusty bread for dunking in juices. Enjoy!
