Perfect Slow Roasted Chicken Recipe

Making a slow roasted chicken does not require you to follow complex instructions. However, you must be patient when making the dish because of the long cooking time. You will have to spend one hour plus a few more minutes preparing the roasted chicken.

  • Total Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes


  • Whole Chicken – One piece of 4 pounds

  • Salt (Kosher) – at least 1 tsp

  • Petite potatoes – 1 pound

  • Extra-virgin olive oil – 3 tbsps

  • Garlic bulb (whole) – 1 piece

  • Rosemary – at least 1 tsp

  • Thyme – at least 1 tsp

  • Pepper – a pinch


  1. Remove the whole chicken from your fridge one hour before cooking.

  2. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

  3. Place the chicken in an ovenproof glass dish and sprinkle salt on it.

  4. Generously season the chicken. Remember, you don’t have to use any exact salt quantity. The measurement will depend on your estimation.

  5. Allow the chicken to stay at room temperature for about one hour, and prepare the potatoes during that time.

  6. Place the potatoes in a medium bowl and add one tbsp of extra-virgin olive oil. Add a pinch of kosher salt and pepper for taste.

  7. After one hour, season your chicken with about one tsp of rosemary and thyme.

  8. Add the remaining two tbsp of olive oil to the chicken and baste it using a brush.

  9. Place potatoes around the chicken in the glass dish.

  10. You should also put the garlic bulb between the potatoes. Remember to cut the ingredient in half to place it on two different sides.

  11. Put the dish into the oven and let the chicken cook for 2.5 to 3 hours, until it is golden brown

  12. Remove the dish after the chicken has cooked perfectly. Let it be at room temperature for ten minutes before serving.
