This recipe was simple and perfect. It's really the best way to eat chicken. I make roast chicken about once per week, because I can always figure out something to do with the leftovers. The carcass makes for the best chicken stock

So easy to make, fall off the bone, tender meat, and so much flavor with all the herbs and spices. I plan to make this weekly now. It's just me, so I use the chicken for my meal prep throughout the week.

Such an easy recipe! I did also used red onion along with the garlic. Perfect, tender meat that's convenient to make ahead for busy weeknights.
