That is one gorgeous chicken!
Seriously, this really is gorgeous! The skin looks so crispy and perfect!
Beautiful! Nothing better than a roasted chicken.
Gorgeous bird! We don’t have roast chicken nearly enough. Need to change that 🙂
This looks so incredibly comforting, perfect for Sunday Supper!
I am not able to locate the McCormick Gourmet Greek Seasoning anywhere here in our town. We live in Coos Bay Oregon, a beautiful coastal community, but it does lack the ability to find some items. I love the seasoning as Fred Meyers used to have them in the deli on their rotisserie chicken, it has been discontinued so was happy to have found your answer to my quest. Thank you
We havent had a chicken in so long, I think this needs to happen ASAP!
lovely and great idea, but having a cabinet crammed with herbs and spices will probably make my own mixture. Can’t justify buying the mixture.
Mmm what a delicate looking Roasted Chicken! Love this recipe!
Could i cook this in the crockpot?
I’m sure there is a way to cook this in a crockpot but since I have not prepared it that way I cannot say how it would be done.
Cooking this now! Can’t wait to taste!
How did it turn out?
Excellent! Prepping with butter/rub under the skin made it good for sure. That’s something honestly I’m usually too lazy to do. Kids and hubby were raving!
Hello, what kind of leaves/herbs you used for garnish?
