Perfectly Roasted Chicken

There is nothing I love more than a good, flavorful roasted chicken.  I hope this recipe helps you! 

1 organic chicken, back bone removed and spatchcocked 

3 tablespoons olive oil 

1 tablespoon sea salt 

2 teaspoons granulated garlic 

1 teaspoon dried parsley 

1 teaspoon dried oregano 

1 teaspoon ground pepper 

1 teaspoon sweet or smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees 


  • Whisk the oil, salt, pepper and herbs 

  • I wrap my countertop in plastic wrap for easy cleanup. 
  • Remove the back bone with a sharp knife or kitchen shears. 
  • Carefully separate the skin from the chicken. Breast.  Massage some of the herb mixture underneath the skins … pour and rub or brush the remainder of the mixture on the whole chicken … inside and out. 



Slice half of an onion into rings and place on casserole to put a little bit of space between your the chicken and the dish 

  • Don’t forget to season all sides of chicken

  • I never ever cook chicken by time always by temp.  These probe thermometers work amazing … I set for desired temp and always end up with the most delicious chicken. 

  • I roast at 400 for the first 15 minutes then drop temp to 375
