Herb-Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Stuffing the chicken with fresh herbs infuses it with flavor; the high oven temperature yields crisp skin and juicy meat.

    This is the best and easiest roasted chicken recipe EVER! I've used fingerling as well as yukon gold potatoes. Use rosemary instead of Thyme and added parsnips. I rotate the roasting pan once half way through cooking time, I found it helps keep the veggies from burning. Also, did the foil tent after pulling from oven; it really makes a difference and baste a few times throughout cooking to get that skin extra crispy! (great for those learning how to cook, very easy to prepare)

    Very tasty, simple recipe. Very comforting for winter nights, and the kitchen ended up smelling like Christmas and herbs! Will do it again! The vegetables were a little burned at the edges, especially the leek as someone previously said. Any tips?

    This is THE recipe. The chicken was moist and the skin crispy. I basted it a few times and just used what ever veggies I had. This will be my new go to roast chicken recipe, and I've tried Ina's, Julia's and Pepin's.

    Excellent! I added rosemary to the cavity. I also added a dab of butter onto the chicken after the cooking, then tented it with foil and let it rest for 15 minutes (Thomas Keller's famous roast chicken recipe). The chicken, the vegetable and the sauce were perfect and totally infused with the herbs (fresh from my garden). Presentation was beautiful. I would serve this for company.
