For super easy and delicious rub it with dark miso paste. Cover the bird completely, but sparingly, then give it a spray with non-flavored Pam. You can also speed up the cooking by butterflying the entire bird before you rub it. With a pair of shears cut it from neck to tail between the breasts then stretch it out flat. Lay it skin side up on a rack on a tray to catch the juices. Put it in a preheated 450 degree oven. Immediately turn the oven down to 300. In about 25 minutes check the temperature. Yum!

I LOVE Jamie Oliver's perfect roast chicken from the Food Revolution cookbook. So simple and turns out perfect every time. He also has an awesome gravy recipe using the drippings and roasted vegetables. You should be able to find both on his website. Be sure to use the carcass to make stock!

TK's Roast Chicken is the best I have ever made at home.

I like to roast my chicken with garlic, lemon and ginger filling the cavity. I roast it on top of Yukon gold potatoes and it's an easy one dish recipe

If you like spicy, a few spoonfuls of harissa paste, juice of 1/2-1 whole lemon, some olive oil to thin it out, and smear over the chicken. Yum. good on wings too.

Or my recipe with a milder but flavorful red-pepper paste:

I'm pretty simple. I like olive oil, garlic, thyme, and parley as a rub.

I love Judy Rodgers Zuni Cafe roast chicken recipe. The dry brining as well as air drying in the fridge really makes a difference. Meat is seasoned throughout, and not just on the surface. Also, love the crispy skin!

If you don't have the book, I found a copy of her recipe here:
