    A Messy Cook's Note:

    Roast chicken is great, because not only do you have one meal right there, you get to use the leftover meat for sandwiches, taco salad, soup, stir-fry, casseroles, etc...not to mention homemade chicken stock! This is a moist and simple way to prepare a roast chicken. It's even better when you add some garlic to the thyme butter!

      This was the best roast chicken that's ever come out of my kitchen. I roasted a 5.5 lb chicken (wanted leftovers for later in the week) and cooked for 2 hours at 400. I also added quarted red potatoes and large chunk carrots after the first hour. The chicken was moist and flavorful, and the veggies were cooked perfectly. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. This is a keeper!
