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.


  • 1 3½ - 4½ lb chicken
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1¾ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Optional: zest of 1 small lemon, lemon wedges for serving
