Ingredients
For the Rub
Cavity Stuffing (optional)
Servings: whole chicken
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Lightly coat the bottom of a small roasting pan or 9 x 13 glass baking dish with olive oil.
  2. Place all rub ingredients into a small bowl and stir together. You can use more or less herbs if desired.
  3. Place chicken breast side down and spread 1/3 of the rub evenly along the bottom and onto the thighs. Flip the bird over and spread remaining rub on the top portion (breasts, legs). Gently lift the skin at the cavity opening and spread some of the rub under the skin on the breasts. Use more olive oil to coat if necessary.
  4. Stuff the cavity with the aromatics if using.
  5. Place chicken in bottom 3rd of the oven and tent with foil. Allow to roast for 2.5-3 hours until the legs and wings are loose and juices run clear (internal temp 165 degrees). Allow bird to rest for 10 minutes before carving.
