Roasted Chicken

1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.

2. Always wash your chicken first and pat dry with a clean paper towel. Use the salt to season the inside cavity and the outside with salt and pepper.

3. Mix the minced garlic in a mixing bowl with the thyme, sage, rosemary and olive oil. Use this herbed oil blend to rub into the cavity of the chicken as well as all over the outside. The natural cooking process will infuse the meat of the chicken thru the cavity, cooking from the inside out.

4. Put the rosemary stems into the cavity of the chicken, and squeeze each lemon slice inside of the cavity, place the whole slices inside, and leave to roast.

5. Place the chicken in a roasting pan and place into the oven.

6. Roast for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until the chicken is golden brown, and the juices run clear. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes before carving.

Root Vegetables

1. Place the vegetables in a large mixing bowl, and season with the salt and pepper. Drizzle with the olive oil and place in a roasting pan or on a sheet pan. Sprinkle with some of the fresh herbs…Place in the oven and roast for 45 minutes, turning once midway during cooking to ensure even browning. Serve with the herb roasted chicken.
