This chicken was excellent! I made a few changes, but I think the end result was very similar. I brushed with olive oil and sprinkled additional seasoning on the chicken- dill, basil, pepper and thyme (I didn't have fresh parsley). I added some broth and water to the bottom of the roasting pan I was using (it was actually too big for the bird, so I didn't want it to dry out) I started it breast side down for the first 30 mins. Instead of adding potatoes, I added whole carrots and unpeeled garlic cloves. I also broiled about 5 mins at the end to crisp up the skin. This was juicy and very tasty and I will definitely make it again!
