Roasted Whole Chicken With Rosemary

The ingredients used are basic and turn an ordinary chicken into a taste of elegance and beauty. Typically, I'm not a fan of rosemary but I have to admit, my opinion may be changing very quickly. Rosemary despite it's aromatic strength as a fresh cut or even dried herb, becomes a subtle backdrop which sets the whole stage for this meal.
