Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove inside packet of innards from chicken, if included, and discard or reserve for another use. Pat chicken dry. Rub with olive oil and sprinkle with herbs, salt and pepper on all sides and inside. Place on a roasting rack in a roasting pan, breast side up. For added flavor, place onion quarters inside the cavity. Tie legs together with kitchen twine to help the chicken keep its shape and cook more evenly. Roast 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven and baste with juices in the pan. Return to oven, reduce oven temperature to 375°F and roast another 30 to 40 minutes, basting once or twice, until juices run clear when a knife is pierced into thigh or meat thermometer reaches 165°F. Cover and let rest 5 minutes before carving.
