How to: Roast a Chicken

* My first go at roasting a chicken. It was much easier than I thought it would be. Don't over-think it :) *

Set your oven to 375 deg.
Open thawed chicken. Remove giblets and wash.
Pat dry and move to roasting pan.
Salt, Pepper, and Herb all sides. (you can basically use whatever you want here. I used poultry seasoning, seasoned salt, and Pepper)
Season WELL, under wings, inside cavity, etc.
Pour olive oil over and massage all over until it looks well oiled and seasoned.
Tuck in wings and tie legs.
Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour (at 375 deg)
Baste, raise temp to 400 deg and bake for another hour.
(Timing depends on size, use and internal read thermometer to check for doneness. 165-170 deg)
