Roast Chicken


I usually keep my roast chicken simple – lots of salt and a little pepper. This one is a little more complex, but not – the result – ultra moist and herby!!

2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c herbs de Provence
1/4 c olive oil
1 TBSP salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 whole chicken

Preheat oven to 475.

Mix all ingredients except chicken in a bowl. Rub all over chicken.

Roast chicken for an hour, turning a couple times to evenly brown. If it browns too fast, reduce heat to 350. Roast for 90 minutes and start checking temp. Remove when it reaches 165. Let rest 10 minutes and carve

Serves 6 – 8.
