Great roast chicken. I left out the green beans and used white wine instead of water. My chicken was 3 1/2 lbs and cooked for 1 1/2 hours. The veggies came out perfectly. I like my chicken a little darker so next time I will take off the foil a little earlier. I used rosemary and thyme for the dried herbs. Thanks! Made for the Bargain Basement tag game.
