This will be very brown and crispy, the juiciest chicken you ever ate! Simple and so good!

We don't eat a lot of chicken in our house (big red meat-eaters!). I have made this twice now in 2 weeks, once with a 6.5lb chicken and then with a 3lb chicken. I seasoned it with the s&p, and some Weber's Garlic & Herb Seasoning. I placed it breast side down, as stated....and left it alone in the oven. No peeking, no basting? I LOVE this recipe! I did buy myself a hot-lick meat thermometer last month to survive the Christmas ham, and I used it both times instead of timing it. The 6.5lb took somewhere around 1hr 45 min, the 3lb about an hour. I take them out when internal temp reaches 175 deg, and it raises 5 deg while it rests for a perfect 180 degs. The kitchen gets a little smokey, but the chicken is fantastic!
