I've made & shared the recipe for whole chicken's before... I know! Why this one... well the difference is I accidentally roasted this chicken upside down or breast side down. This may or may not be ok!! But guess what... it turned out amazing, best part the breasts were very juicy.
1 whole head of garlic (minced)
1 tsp. Paprika (for color)
1 tsp. Dried Thyme
Enough extra virgin olive oil to form a paste.. about 1/4 cup!
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl! Preheat oven at 350.
Wash your chicken, I did anyways! Pat dry for a crispy skin. Rub entire paste onto the chicken. Lastly sprinkle generously with salt all over & some freshly ground pepper. Place breast side down cover with foil & throw into your oven.
1 hour later... after you bathed your kids or took a shower... drank a corona.. napped.. whatever.
Go back to your oven open & undercover your chicken & raise the temperature to 450 for another 25 mins. This will brown the top!
Lastly, take out your chicken, set on your stove & loosely cover with foil.
Let it rest for 15 to 20 mins... to insure you have a juicy chicken.
I chopped my chicken up into pieces for easy serving!
