This came from the May 2005 issue of Family Circle magazine. I tried it a couple nights ago. It makes the perfect meal for three.

Great roasted chicken. I used rosemary as the herb. I also added a half onion to the chicken cavity. I served this with recipe #169021 and recipe #37039. Very nice dinner!
