Classic Roasted Chicken

by | May 20, 2022 | Meals, Recipes


  • 1 (3 1/2-lb.) organic free-range chicken
  • 1/2 lb. organic baby potatoes, quartered
  • 2 stalks organic celery, cut into large pieces
  • 1 organic yellow onion, cut into large pieces
  • 3 medium organic carrots, peeled and cut into large pieces
  • 1 head organic garlic, halved
  • 1 bunch fresh organic thyme
  • 1 organic lemon
  • 1 tbsp. organic extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. melted grass-fed butter
  • Redmond Real Salt
  • Freshly ground organic black pepper
  • Pat chicken dry and season all over with salt and pepper. Tie legs together and tuck wing tips under the body of the chicken. (If you have time, let rest in fridge for 1 hour, or overnight.)
  • Preheat oven to 425°. Fill a 9″-x-13″ baking dish with onion, carrots, celery, potatoes, and garlic and toss together with oil and 1 teaspoon salt. Place chicken on top. Brush chicken all over with melted butter and stuff cavity with lemon and most of the thyme, reserving a couple sprigs for garnish.
  • Roast until juices run clear and a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the thigh reads 165°, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Tent chicken with foil and let rest 15 to 20 minutes, then transfer to a cutting board and carve.
  • Serve chicken with roasted vegetables.
