    elainegl's Note:

    I got this recipe from a Better Homes & Garden "Low-Carb Cooking 2004" magazine. It's a family favorite and so easy. I mixed up a large batch of the herb blend and keep it in a shaker jar to save time. I added brining to the recipe since I always brine my chicken (it makes it so much better!) but you can omit that step. (Brining time is included in the prep. time.)

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place chicken in a 1 gallon zip-lock type bag. Pour 1/2 cup Kosher salt over chicken. Carefully pour 1 quart water over chicken and seal bag.
    2. 2
      Gently mix the salt/water solution to cover chicken. Place sealed bag on a paper towel in the refrigerator and leave for 30 minutes. (This is called brining.).
    3. 3
      Remove chicken from bag and rinse under cold water. Pat chicken dry.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 375°F
    5. 5
      In a small bowl, stir together basil, salt (1/2 tsp.), sage, thyme, and lemon pepper (or pepper).
    6. 6
      In another small bowl, melt butter. Add minced garlic to butter and mix together.
    7. 7
      Remove neck and giblets from chicken. Place chicken, breast side down, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Use a basting brush to paint garlic butter onto the chicken skin. Sprinkle part of the herbs over the butter.
    8. 8
      Turn chicken over and repeat with remaining butter and herbs.
    9. 9
      Roast, uncovered, for 1.25 - 1.5 hours, or until drumsticks move easily in the sockets and a meat thermometer registers 180°F
    10. 10
      Serve and enjoy!

      This is embarrassing, but I made this back in 2008 and have made it a couple of times just never reviewed it! My DH LOVED it but since he's the main carnivore in the house I rarely make it for him. Here are my "private notes" I wrote back in '08: added c. 2tbsp butter to cavity with poultry seasoning, onion powder, and garlic powder sprinkled & a clove of garlic. Added onion/garlic powder to herb mix on exterior. baked 375 until browned then covered and lowered oven to 350

      Very good! I threw some potatoes and carrots in an hour into cooking with 1/2 c water and covered it. The results were fabulous and I had a nice herb flavored broth to serve as gravy. TY

      This chicken was absolutely fantastic! I cannot over-emphasize how good this is. I will on occasion buy a roasted chicken meal from the grocery store and it amazes me how moist and favorful their chicken is and I just assume its a packet that they have that make it so good. The secret is the brine and garlic butter rub. Absolutely amazing. A must try!
