Simple Oven Roasted Chicken

I love to occasionally roast a whole chicken.  It’s super simple and delicious.  I usually get the 2-pack of young chickens from Costco and they are quite inexpensive-cheaper than buying a rotisserie chicken.  You can add any spices and herbs you want.  I just choose to keep mine very simple.  There’s plenty of flavor!  Enjoy!

-one whole chicken (4-5 lbs)
-extra virgin olive oil
-seasoned salt
-garlic powder
-ground pepper
Preheat oven to 375 F.  Fit a roasting rack onto a baking sheet and set aside.
Clean the chicken of any giblets, rinse and pat dry with a paper towel.
Carefully, rub the whole chicken with the oil.  Season generously with the salt, garlic powder and pepper.  Don’t forget to season under the skin and inside cavities as well.
Place seasoned chicken on prepared sheet.  Roast in preheated oven for 75-90 minutes or until juices run clear.
Remove from the oven and let it rest for about 15 minutes.  Enjoy!
