  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Rinse the chicken thoroughly and pat it dry with paper towels.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the minced garlic, olive oil, salt, black pepper, dried thyme, dried rosemary, and paprika.
  4. Use a brush to generously coat the chicken with the mixture, making sure to get under the skin as well.
  5. Cut the lemon into thin slices and place them inside the cavity of the chicken.
  6. Place the chicken in a roasting pan, breast-side up.
  7. Wash and dry the baby potatoes, and arrange them around the chicken in the pan.
  8. Drizzle the potatoes with the remaining garlic and oil mixture, and sprinkle with a little salt and black pepper.
  9. Roast the chicken and potatoes for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C).
  10. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before carving.
  11. Serve with roasted potatoes and lemon slices, and enjoy!
  • If you have extra time, marinate the chicken in the garlic and oil mixture for a few hours before roasting to allow the flavors to meld together.
  • For crispier skin, increase the oven temperature to 450°F (230°C) during the last 10-15 minutes of cooking.
  • You can also add other vegetables to the roasting pan, such as carrots, onions, or bell peppers.
  • Leftover chicken can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days and makes a great addition to salads, sandwiches, or soups.
