How to Make Rosemary Roasted Chicken With Potatoes


  1. Set chicken on the counter to cut the chill. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Add sliced onions and potatoes to a bowl.
  3. Combine olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, and rosemary for the seasoned potatoes in a small bowl. Pour mixture over potatoes. Gently mix to coat evenly. Set aside.
  4. Unwrap chicken and remove giblets from the cavity. Rinse chicken (inside and out). Pat dry with paper towels.
  5. Gently run two fingers between the skin and breast of the chicken.
  6. Mix the chicken seasoning ingredients in a small bowl.
  7. Rub mixture under the skin, inside the chicken cavity and over outside of the chicken.
  8. Mix together the stuffing ingredients and stuff inside the cavity. Depending on the chicken size, all of the stuffing may not fit.
  9. Fold the wings backward under the chicken. Tie the drumsticks together with twine.
  10. Place the chicken onto a small roasting pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Surround the chicken with the potatoes/onions.
  11. Bake chicken for 90 minutes. After 45 minutes, baste the chicken. Move the potatoes around with a spoon to roast evenly. Put chicken back in the oven to finish roasting.
  12. When done, remove chicken from the oven and cover loosely with foil. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes so the juices redistribute.
  13. Using a slotted spoon, take the potatoes out of the pan and place into a bowl. Toss to coat with the juices.
  14. Remove the chicken from the pan and place on a platter. Spoon the potatoes around the chicken. Cut and remove the twine.
  15. Slice and enjoy!
