  • 1 whole chicken (approximately 3-4 lbs)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp rosemary (dried or fresh)
  • 2 lemons (halved)
  • 4 cloves of garlic (peeled)
  • 1 cup chicken broth

Steps to Make Juicy Roasted Chicken Recipe

  1. Preheat Your Oven- Begin by preheating your oven to 425°F (220°C). This high temperature ensures that your chicken gets that crispy, golden skin.
  2. Prepare the Chicken- Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. This step is crucial for achieving that coveted crispy skin.
  3. Seasoning Magic- In a small bowl, mix olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, dried thyme, and rosemary. Rub this magical concoction all over the chicken, making sure to get into every nook and cranny.
  4. Citrus Burst- Place the halved lemons and peeled garlic cloves inside the chicken cavity. This not only adds a citrusy zing but also infuses the meat with incredible flavours.
  5. Trussing for Even Cooking- To ensure even cooking, truss your chicken by tying the legs together using kitchen twine. This step may sound fancy, but it's a secret weapon for a perfectly roasted bird.
  6. Into the Oven- Transfer the seasoned and trussed chicken to a roasting pan. Pour chicken broth into the pan to keep the meat moist during cooking.
  7. Roasting Time- Roast the chicken in the preheated oven for approximately 1 hour or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Baste the chicken with pan juices halfway through for an extra burst of flavour.
  8. Let it Rest- Once out of the oven, resist the temptation to carve immediately. Let the chicken rest for at least 10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring every bite is succulent. Atl last, savour this perfect roasted chicken with love either with yourself or with family and friends.

For a quicker and equally delicious alternative, adapt this recipe for your air fryer. Follow the same seasoning and trussing steps, then air fry at 375°F (190°C) for about 45 minutes and there you have an easy roasted chicken.
