  • 1 4-4 1/2 pound Pasturebird Regenerative Raised Whole Chicken
  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes
  • 3 large carrots, cut to 1 inch pieces
  • 1 head garlic, top removed
  • 1 whole red onion, quartered
  • 1 whole lemon, halved
  • 15 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 5 sprigs fresh rosemary, 2 sprigs with leaves diced
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sea salt, for seasoning
  • 1/2 cup black pepper, for seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  2. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; fill the cavity with the lemon, garlic, rosemary and thyme.

  3. Brush the outside with butter and liberally season with salt and pepper.

  4. In a large mixing bowl, toss together onion, potatoes and carrots with olive oil, salt, pepper, and another bunch of thyme, and the rest of the rosemary. Spread on the bottom of a roasting pan and place the chicken on top.

  5. Roast for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until juices from the chicken run clear and the center of the chicken reaches 170°F on a meat thermometer. Remove from the oven, cover in foil, and let rest for 15 minutes. Carve the chicken and serve with the roasted vegetables.
