Roast Chicken


1 3-3.5 lb chicken
Adobo seasoning*
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon thyme
2 tablespoons oil

Remove neck/giblets from chicken.  Rinse and pat dry.  Slice each garlic clove in half.  Make 4 slits in chicken skin to put garlic in.  Season outside of bird with Adobo and thyme.  Cook at 375 degrees for 80 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 175.  Remove from oven and let rest for 15 minutes before cutting.

Cooks note: Use chicken carcass to make your own stock.  It can be used for flavorings in other dishes-like mashed potatoes, rice, etc.   You can freeze it in ice cube trays for future use.

*Adobo is available in the spice or Latin section of the grocery store and is similar to a season salt with garlic.
