A simple roast chicken is one of those things we all need to know how to make. It's a dish that is so versatile and can be used in different ways for multiple meals throughout the week. Feel free to toss some veggies, like carrots and fennel, in olive oil and put them in the bottom of the roasting pan too. It will all come out delish!
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Remove the giblets, rinse the chicken inside and out, and pat dry. Salt and pepper the inside of the chicken. Stuff the cavity with the lemon, 1/2 the bunch of rosemary, and garlic. Tie the legs together with a kitchen string and place the chicken, breast side up, in a roasting pan.
Rub the outside of the chicken with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper. Throw the rest of the sprigs of rosemary in the pan around the chicken. Roast the chicken for 1hr or until the juices run clear when you cut between the leg and thigh.
