About this Recipe

This Herby Roasted Chicken is a delicious way to switch up a classic roasted chicken. It comes together with a simple marinade of chopped fresh thyme, fresh rosemary, extra virgin olive oil, and salt. If you have a lemon on hand, use a microplane grater to zest it and add it to the marinade for a welcome fresh flavor to this savory recipe. This herby marinade also works well with a spatchcock or butterflied chicken. If you go that route, select “spatchcock chicken” on your Brava and follow the marinade recipe below.


Prep the herb mixture

  • In small bowl, mix thyme, rosemary, kosher salt, olive oil, and lemon zest if using.


Prep the chicken

  • Using your hands, rub herb mixture all over chicken to evenly coat it, being sure to get some of the marinade under the skin.
  • Place chicken, skin side up, on the Brava Metal Tray, with the breast side pointing towards the left, and the legs pointing towards the right side of tray.


Cook chicken

  • Select “Herby Roasted Chicken” on your Brava touchscreen and follow instructions.
  • After plugging in TempSensor, insert it horizontally through thickest part of chicken breast towards breastbone. It’s okay if TempSensor tip touches breastbone.
  • Note: If using the Time-Based Cook option, you will not need to use the TempSensor.
  • Slide metal tray into bottom shelf, press green button to begin cooking.


Finish & serve

  • When chicken is done, carve on large cutting board and transfer to platter for serving.
  • Serve with freshly cracked black pepper and lemon wedges if desired.
