  • Serves: 6 servings
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 90 minutes


  • 1 4-4 1/2 pound Rosie Organic 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.

  1. Chicken is considered one of the non-vegetarian delicacies. Veg chicken is the best way for those who miss their favorite meal, and have adopted the plant based chicken diet.
    As we look at the bigger picture of our health, we suffer from many diseases as a result of the eating habits we follow, which we determine for ourselves. In the short run, it may seem fine, but in the long run it is detrimental to our bodies. Because of this, it is critical that we move to a plant based diet and veg chicken as early as possible.
