    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 450°. In a small bowl, combine the chopped thyme, rosemary and lavender leaves with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper.
    2. 2
      Carefully loosen the skin over the chicken breast and legs; don't tear the skin. Gently work the herb paste under the skin, spreading it all over the breast and legs.
    3. 3
      Season the cavity with salt and pepper and stuff with the reserved lemon halves, garlic cloves and herb sprigs.
    4. 4
      Set the chicken in a medium flameproof roasting pan and rub the skin with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
    5. 5
      Drizzle with half of the lemon juice and season generously with salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Roast the chicken for 20 minutes. Drizzle with the remaining lemon juice, then reduce the oven temperature to 350° and roast for about 40 minutes longer, or until the juices run clear when a thigh is pierced; baste once or twice during cooking.
    7. 7
      Cover the bird loosely with foil if it browns too quickly. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let rest for 15 minutes before carving.
    8. 8
      Spoon off the fat from the roasting pan and set the pan on 2 burners over moderately high heat.
    9. 9
      Add the water and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Boil the sauce until reduced to 3/4 cup, then strain and serve with the chicken.
