Ingredients
  Whole chicken 5 Pound (Taken Out Of Fridge For At Least 30 Minutes)
  Butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (1 Stick Of Butter At Room Temperature)
  Salt 1 Tablespoon
  Pepper 1 Tablespoon
  Mustard powder 1 Tablespoon
  Onion powder 2 Tablespoon
  Garlic head 1⁄2 Clove (2.5 gm), minced
  Oregano 1 Tablespoon (Dried Or Freshly Minced)
  Parsley 1 Tablespoon
  Thyme 1 Tablespoon (Dried Or Freshly Minced)
  Juice of lemon 1 Tablespoon
  Honey 4 Tablespoon
  Fresh rosemary sprigs 4
  Onion 1 Large, roughly chopped
  Parsley sprigs 10
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

MAKING
2. In a bowl, combine butter with salt, pepper, mustard powder, and onion powder. Mince garlic, oregano, parsley, and thyme and add to the butter mixture. Add lemon juice and combine thoroughly.
3. Roughly chop the onions and add them to a baking dish, along with the parsley, large enough to fit the chicken.
4. Place the chicken, legs up, on top of the onions.
5. Prepare the chicken by sliding your hands underneath the skin on the breasts. Second, tie the drumsticks with butchers twine (refer to video). Both of these techniques help the chicken cook beautifully and stay moist!
6. Take the butter/herb mixture and begin to rub half of it underneath the skin and the other half all over the outside (refer to video). Don’t be afraid to massage the chicken! Wash your hands first!
7. Drizzle the honey all over the outside of the chicken and place one rosemary sprig on top of the chicken and the rest of the rosemary inside the cavity of the chicken.
8. Cover with aluminum foil and roast chicken for about 70 – 85 minutes. For the last 5 minutes, take aluminum foil off and switch oven to broil to sear the outside of the chicken.
9. When chicken is done (if you have a meat thermometer, it should read about 160-165, if not, feel free to cut into to check), let chicken sit for 10-15 minutes before carving and serving!

SERVING
10. Carve and enjoy!
