Oven Roasted Chicken

PREP: 15 mins
COOK: 2 hrs
READY IN: 2 hrs 15 mins

– Original recipe makes 1 whole roasted chicken
– 1 (4 pound) whole chicken
– 1 cup margarine, softened
– 1 tablespoon garlic salt
– 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
– 1 teaspoon dried thyme
– 1 teaspoon dried parsley
– 1 pinch dried rosemary

– Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
– Rinse and pat chicken thoroughly dry with paper towels. Mix margarine, garlic salt, black pepper, thyme, parsley, and rosemary in a bowl and rub the margarine mixture around the chicken’s exterior. Place any remaining margarine mixture into the chicken cavity. Place chicken into a glass baking dish.
