Whole Roasted Chicken baked in the oven is crispy outside while tender and juicy inside. The recipe is super easy and comes out perfect every single time!
Preheat the oven to 190°C.
In a small mixing bowl, mix together salt, dried oregano, dried thyme, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, and extra-virgin olive oil and set aside.
Rinse the chicken and remove the giblet bag. Pad dry with paper towel and place on a plate.
Pour the seasoning mix over the chicken, and using your hands, rub it all over the skin.
Cut a lemon in four pieces and place it inside the cavity of the chicken. Then, using a chicken twine, tie the legs together.
Place it in a baking dish or a cast iron skillet and bake uncovered at 190°C for about 90 minutes.
