      Yummy! Baked a 5 pound bird at 300 degrees for 2 hours then increased to 375 for the last hour. Used fresh rosemary instead of ground. Would use a rack next time for the chicken and potatoes so some of the fat could drain off. Would increase the potatoes and red onion next time as the family loved them. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for PAC Fall 2008.

      This was excellent. I thought it would be too strong a taste with 2 tbsp rosemary, so I used 1 tbsp instead. It probably would have been even better using 2 as you suggest. I also added two whole garlic cloves inside the cavity with the onion. I will be making this again. Thanks for posting.
