Ingredients

  • 5 pounds whole roasting chicken
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 yellow onion
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 handful fresh parsley
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425° F.
  2. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil and position a roasting rack inside of it.
  3. Remove the giblets from the cavity of the chicken and discard. Rinse the chicken under cold water and thoroughly pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Smash the garlic cloves with a back of the knife and discard the papery skins.
  5. Take one garlic clove and rub it firmly over the entire surface of the chicken. Place all the smashed garlic cloves in the cavity of the chicken.
  6. Liberally season the chicken with the salt and black pepper, to taste, taking care to season the outside as well as the internal cavity.
  7. With clean hands, rub the olive oil all over the surface of the chicken, and under the breast skin.
  8. Transfer the chicken breast-side up onto the roasting rack.
  9. Tie the legs securely together with kitchen twine. Tuck the wing tips underneath the body of the chicken.
  10. Separate the onion into two parts and place into the cavity of the chicken, along with the lemon half, fresh parsley, and thyme.
  11. Transfer the roasting pan to the middle rack of the preheated oven.
  12. Roast the chicken for 80-90 minutes, or until the thickest part of the chicken breast reaches an internal temperature of 160° F.
  13. Remove the roasting pan from the oven.
  14. Allow the chicken to rest on the roasting rack for 10 minutes.
  15. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Carve as desired, and serve.
