Roasted Chicken

Flavorful moist roasted chicken that is seasoned with a garlic and olive oil paste then generously sprinkled with rosemary and thyme.

There are so many ways to roast a chicken, and it has always been a favorite meal of mine. For some reason my sons feel differently and so I'm always looking for different ways to prepare it in order to entice them to eat it. This roasted chicken dinner was a success.

For side dishes with the chicken I served garlic potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and a side Caesar salad.

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 1 hour 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour 45 min
Yields: 4-5 people

Ingredients

  • 1 four pound chicken
  • 2 -3 ribs of celery
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • dried rosemary sprigs
  • dried thyme
  • extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In the bottom of a roasting pan add celery ribs. This adds flavor and makes clean-up easier.
  3. Set the chicken on top of the celery ribs.
  4. Grate 3 cloves of garlic and add and mix about a tsp. of extra virgin olive oil making a light paste.
  5. Brush the garlic and oil over the chicken.
  6. Mix the rosemary and thyme together and sprinkle it on the chicken.
  7. Peel and cut the onion into 1/8's.
  8. Add 1/2 inch of water to the bottom of the roasting pan and add the onion.
  9. Pop into the oven for approximately 1 1/2 hours or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 170 - 180 degrees.
  10. Remove from the oven and place the chicken onto a serving plate. Cover with aluminum foil for about ten minutes, carve and serve.

      @Donna Cook: I find that when I do buy the fresh herbs I end up throwing most of what I bought out because I don't have time to use it all up before it goes bad.

      What a scrumptious recipe! Glad you used dried herbs since fresh can be very expensive. Bookmarking.

      Ah, roasted chicken! A family favorite, no matter how I make it! I'm definitely going to try your recipe. I should plant some thyme. I already have a huge rosemary bush in my yard.

      I've never heard of using the celery stalks - what a good idea! And I have never put water in the pan either. The water, along with the drippings and the onion, should make some really good gravy. Yum!

      Another thing - I'm crazy about my Pampered Chef garlic press. That being said, I was fascinated by the idea of a grater plate - that, too was entirely new to me! See what an education you have provided? :)

      Thank you so much!

      I love roast chicken too.

      My mouth was watering so much when I saw the photo, that I almost gave it a 'like' before I had read the text!

      I often do a variation where you put garlic and a whole lemon (chopped in half) inside the chicken while it cooks. - the lemon infuses itself into the chicken and gives it a lovely subtle flavour.

      @sousababy: I've just started using rosemary again as the only other time ever used it on something I hated the dish. Maybe I used too much.

      Sometimes the most basic ingredients taste wonderful. I did a chicken like this once - but I overdid the rosemary.

      I use a lot of spices in my cooking but I have never used rosemary. I think it is definitely time to rectify that situation. Your chicken recipe looks delicious.
