Whole Roasted Chicken

It may seem odd to post a recipe for a whole roasted chicken in the dog days of summer. However, my youngest wanted the chicken at the store and I wanted Green Chili Enchiladas (I use the left-over chicken the next day for my enchiladas, which will be posted tomorrow). So, it worked out.

Ingredients:

  1. Whole Free Range Roasting Chicken
  2. Olive Oil
  3. 3 T Garlic Salt
  4. 1.5 T Dried Rosemary
  5. 1.5 T Dried Thyme
  6. 1.5 T Dried Sage
  7. 1/3 cup dry vermouth

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove packet on inside of chicken, either set aside for making stock or throw away. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Using your hands, coat outside of chicken with Olive Oil. Then rub chicken all over with the garlic salt, rosemary, thyme and sage. I also rub the inside of the chicken cavity with the spices.

Place chicken spine up on a roasting pan and put in oven. Cook for 45 minutes, flip chicken over and drizzle dry vermouth over chicken breast. Put back in oven and cook another 45 minutes. Chicken is done when the liquid at the leg joint runs clear when cut with a knife. Let rest 10 minutes and then carve.

Enjoy.
