Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    Olive or vegetable oil cooking spray
    8 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    3 tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped, plus sprigs for garnish
    1 tsp salt
    1 roasting chicken (6–7 lb)
    Kitchen twine
    1 lemon, sliced (optional)

Directions

Heat oven to 400°. Lightly coat a roasting pan and rack with cooking spray. Combine garlic, rosemary and salt in a bowl. Remove giblets and neck from chicken; trim fat. Starting at the neck cavity, gently loosen skin from breasts and drumsticks; spread rosemary mixture evenly under skin. Tuck wing tips under back of chicken; tie ends of drumsticks together with twine. Season with additional salt and black pepper; place breast side up in pan. Roast, basting twice with pan juices, until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh (and not touching bone) reads 175°, about 1 3/4 hours. Let stand 10 minutes before carving (remove skin). Garnish with rosemary sprigs and lemon slices, if desired, and serve

    I made this last night and it was really good--chicken cooked perfectly. I used a smaller chicken so I think next time I would cut down the garlic a bit because it was a bit too strong. I'll probably make this again once a month - 4/26/10

    I have done this before, if you mix the garlic with butter or spread and do the same thing you will not have to baste, the key is also to use fresh herbs as dried taste bitter - 3/23/09

    This was terrific. My sweetie and I roast a lot of chicken. This looks like a great standard. We made this with chicken thighs and legs. Placed the seasoning under the skin as you described and then seasoned the skin with a little salt and cracked pepper. Super easy and really good. Thanks! - 4/5/10

    Good stuff. I squeezed a lemon over the top and then stuck the two halves inside. The juice from the roast was GREAT with home made biscuits. - 4/30/08

  • This was excellent. Both my husband and brother in law raved over it. I split the chicken in half, removing the backbone so its was splayed out in the roasting tray. I covered it for about 50 min with lid then lid off to brown it up even more. I found it cooks faster this way - 9/29/12
