GETTING READY
1) Set the oven temperature to 425°F before roasting.

3) Season the cavity with salt and pepper.
4) Fill the cavity with giblets (not liver), garlic, rosemary, and lemon.
5) Tie the chicken and keep it in a small roasting pan.
6) Apply the chicken with butter and then sprinkle with oil.
7) Adjust seasonings.
8) In the centre of the pre-heated oven, keep the pan and roast the chicken for 1 1/2 hours, basting with the accumulated juices every 10 to 15 minutes, until the juices run clear when the thickest part of the thigh is pricked with a knife.
9) Take it off from oven and keep aside for 10 minutes.
10) Remove the strings from the tied chicken and also the stuffing ingredients, saving the giblets for some other recipe.

FINALIZING

13) Pass it through a gravy-strainer and spoon over the carved chicken.

SERVING
