Ingredients

  1. Check 4 large sprigs fresh thyme or 1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves
  2. Check 4 large sprigs fresh rosemary or 2 tablespoons dried rosemary
  3. Check 1 whole chicken (about 3 1/2-4 pounds)
  4. Check 2tablespoons olive oil
  5. Check kosher salt
  6. Check freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Tuck the herbs between the legs and breast. Rub with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper.
  2. Roast 1 hour and 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 165° F in the breast. (Be careful not to touch bone with the thermometer; bone will register a higher temperature than the meat.)
  3. Remove from oven. Cover loosely with foil and let rest 15 minutes to allow the meat to finish cooking.
