Try out this Herb Roast Chicken #recipe for a twist on#sundaydinner

You will need:

1 medium roasting pan

1 4 – 5 pound roasting chicken (I usually get an organic one at Whole Foods)

1 full head garlic

1 lemon

1 bunch thyme

2 carrots

1 parsnip

bag of small red, yellow and purple potatoes

bunch of orange beets

1 onion

3 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

salt and pepper

Stuff chicken with thyme (wrap thyme with butcher string into bundle), 1/2 lemon, and cut garlic (cut whole garlic head in half and stuff it into the inside of the chicken (it’s okay to keep the peel on)).

After stuffing with thyme, lemon and garlic, tie chicken legs together with butcher string. Place chicken on vegetables in the roasting pan. Heat three tablespoons butter in the microwave and when done pour over chicken.

Put chicken into oven and roast for 1 1/2 hours, making sure to baste every 1/2 hour. After taking chicken out of oven let it rest for 15 minutes so the juices redistribute. Carve and enjoy!
