Who knew making a whole roasted chicken was so easy? I always thought it was so intimidating, but turns out it’s SO simple! It also makes for the best dinner and tons of leftovers to repurpose throughout the week! We’ve made this recipe 3 times now and it gets me every time! Also, fun fact, when I photographed this chicken, we didn’t realize until after that it was actually upside down which is why it looks a little funny! Haha oops!
Honestly, when it comes to this one, the more generous you are with the seasoning the better. When you serve it, don’t forget to drizzle that amazing juice on the bottom on top because oh my gosh it’s magical! Enjoy!
