Kathy's Rosemary Roast Chicken


I don't know what's more comforting than roast chicken.
After spending the afternoon,
outside in sub zero temps
getting hit by 30 mile an hour wind gusts, 
while I photographed waves
pounding the shoreline of Lake Superior,
I wanted something hearty and satisfying.
My dearest friend Kathy made this for us.
It fit the bill.  
And it's so easy ...


1 Whole Chicken


Preheat oven to 350.
Rinse chicken.
Pat Dry.

Salt and Pepper the inside.
Season  half a stick of butter with salt, pepper, and a little rosemary.
Put a healthy pad of seasoned butter underneath the skin of each breast.
Melt 2 tbsp of butter and pour over chicken.
Salt, pepper and rosemary the skin.

Bake until chicken is done. 
Internal temp of 160 in the breast,
and or until the juices run clear.

To quote Ina Garten;

"How easy was that?"
