A sample bite from the book: Herb-Roasted Whole Chicken
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place a rack inside a large roasting pan.
Rub the olive oil all over the chicken. As you do, gently loosen the skin over the breast to form a pocket.
Slide half of the rosemary and thyme sprigs underneath the skin over the breast, and put the sage leaves, bay leaf, and remaining sprigs inside the cavity.
Rub with the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thigh registers 165°F, 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before carving.
1 (3- to 3½-pound) roasting chicken
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 rosemary sprigs
6 thyme sprigs
4 fresh sage leaves
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
