2 cloves garlic, minced 

2 springs fresh rosemary 

2 springs fresh sage 

1 (4 pound) whole chicken, rinsed and patted dry

2 navel oranges halved 

salt and pepper to taste 

1/2 cup butter, melted 

2 springs thyme 

 

Method 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pour the chicken broth into a small roasting pan.
  2. Loosen skin the skin from the breasts and thighs of the chicken. Stuff the pieces evenly underneath the skin of the chicken and place into the roasting pan. Squeeze the orange halves over the chicken and stuff the orange halves into the chicken cavity. Tie the legs together with kitchen twine. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper to taste, then rub in the inced garlic. Drizzle the melted butter all over the chicken, then lay the herb sprigs onto the breast and around the legs.
  3. Cover the dish with aluminium foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and baste the chicken with the pan juices. Continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh reads 165 degrees F(74 degrees C) 1 to 2 hours . Baste the chicken every 10 to 15 minutes after you uncover it. Once cooked, allow the chicken to rest out of the oven for 10 minutes before slicing.
