  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Pat chicken dry and sprinkle salt on all sides and inside the cavity. Sprinkle with black pepper. Pluck the leaves from 1 spring of rosemary and sprinkle on the chicken. Place the other whole sprig inside the cavity along with garlic and lemon.
  3. Place the chicken on a roasting rack set inside a roasting pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone, should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Th is s a moist, tasty and easy roast chicken. The roasting time was a half hour more for me.

This was pretty good and very easy. We added a few more spices to the skin. We also had to cook a bit longer (gas oven) and the skin wasn't super crispy but the flavour was great!
