Instructions
  1. Move your oven rack to the lowest position; preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix all the dry ingredients. Set to the side.
  3. Remove the giblets if they are inside the whole chicken. Rinse the chicken with cold water, inside and out, before placing into the baking dish. Brush the outside of the chicken with the olive oil.
  4. Rub the spice mixture all over the outside of the chicken. If you are wanting to use the fresh rosemary twigs, place a few on top of the chicken
  5. Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Allow chicken to rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting. Don’t forget to remove the rosemary twigs before eating!
Recipe Notes

If you are wanting to cook 2 whole chickens at the same time, increase your cooking time to about 70-80 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

This whole chicken can be prepped the night before: chicken can sit in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours after the spices have been rubbed on. I know some of us like the marinating process 😉
