Roast Chicken Provencal
1 whole roasting chicken
2 Tbls. extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbls. minced garlic
1 Tbls. freshly ground course black pepper
zest and juice from one fresh lemon
1 Tbls. fresh thyme or 1 tsp. dry thyme
1/2 tsp. fresh rosemary or 1/4 tsp. dry rosemary
1 tsp. fresh oregano or 1/2 tsp. dry oregano
1 tsp. kosher salt or sea salt


Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Rinse chicken and set aside. Prepare the marinade. Zest the lemon, mince the zest placing it in a medium size stainless steel bowl. Once the lemon has been zested you may juice the lemon, placing the juice in the bowl with the zest. Prepare all of the herbs, mince all and add them to the bowl with all remaining ingredients. Mix all ingredients well and reserve. Place the chicken in a large stainless steal bowl. Slightly pull the skin from the breast section and place a bit of the provencal marinade between the breast meat and the skin. Pour the remaining marinade over the entire chicken making sure that the entire chicken is coated well.

Place a chicken roaster in a roasting pan, place the chicken upright on the roaster and place in the preheated oven for 50 minutes or until the chicken has reached 165 degrees.
