- 5 lb(s) Whole Chicken
- 3 Potatoes (cut into wedges)
- 2 Carrot (cut into large slices)
- 1 Yellow Onion (large)
- 2 sprig(s) Thyme (cut into large slices)
- 2 sprig(s) Rosemary (fresh)
- 2 Tbsp Butter (fresh)
- Salt (divided)
Help your chicken roast more evenly by trussing it. First, tuck the wings in to the body and then tie tight to the body of the bird. Then pull the legs together and tie them together. After trussing the bird, season it with salt and pepper.
Place all the vegetables and herbs in the bottom of a Dutch oven or similar oven proof cooking instrument. Place 1 tbsp. of butter on top of the vegetables near the front of the pot and the 2nd tbsp. near the rear of the pot. Set the chicken breast side up on top of the veggies, herbs and butter and place into an oven preheated to 400ºF.
Roast uncovered for approximately 45-60 minutes, until the internal temperature of the thighs reaches 165ºF. Once the bird reaches temperature, remove from oven, remove the strings from trussing, and let rest for 5 minutes. After resting, carve into pieces and serve with the roasted veggies and juices from the pot. Enjoy!
