Clean your chicken for roasting, remove giblets and pat completely dry with a paper towel.
In a bowl, combine softened butter and brown sugar with a spoon until creamy. Using your hands, rub butter over entire chicken, including underneath the skin if you wish. Sprinkle the entire thing with salt and pepper.
Set chicken in a roasting pan breast-side up. Roast for about 1 hour and 20 minutes.(Or 20 min. per pound) Let rest for about 15-20 minutes before cutting.
