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!

Delicious. I did brine the chicken and mixed the butter and herbs together then put under the skin and on the top. I always cook my chickens in a clay pot and this was was GREAT. Used some of the left over for Chicken Noodle Soup.

I made this the first time a few years ago and haven't used another recipe since. Its just that amazing. I put most of the spice/garlic butter under the skin and put onions in the cavity. It comes out amazing every time. I don't always brine it, but it does make it more juicy.

Absolutely love this recipe with a great combination of herbs. Only changes I made was reduced the salt and sub'd buttermilk for the water. The chicken came out moist & tasty, thanks for sharing.

This is an excellent recipe. I tried it the day after Thanksgiving and it totally exceeded my expectations. After doing a brine for this chicken, I don't want to have chicken any other way.

Amazing chicken! I didn't brine the chicken, and added some chopped potatoes, mushrooms, and carrots the last hour. Everyone, including my 2 year old enjoyed it.
