Prepare a delicious and scrumptious roast chicken at home. Before you can put the whole chicken in the oven, you need to ask yourself if you have perfected your chicken roasting technique. Even though roasting an entire chicken seems like a difficult feat, it is one of the easiest techniques to master.

Purchase a chicken from your local grocer. Bring it home, wash it, and pat it dry using paper towels. Once the chicken is completely dry, you need to season it will black pepper and salt. Use a brush or your hand to give the chicken a good rub down, rubbing it with oil or melted butter.

Tie the legs of the chicken together with a string and place it in a pan. Add garlic, lemon, and rosemary into the pan to give the chicken some aromatic flavors. Place the pan in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Roast the chicken for about an hour and ninety minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

After an hour, use a thermometer to see if the chicken is cooked. If the thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit, consider the chicken cooked. Take out the chicken and put it aside for fifteen minutes, carve, and serve.
