Whole Roasted Chicken Marrakesh



I just made this up, (in a rush), using ingredients on hand… it looks a bit messy in the picture,   but was very delicious, so I had to share!


1 whole organic chicken roaster

fresh garlic

fresh herbs, such as oregano, thyme, mint, parsley 

kosher salt 

fresh black pepper


green olives

1 onion, sliced

olive oil

fresh lemon juice

jarred tomato sauce (about a cup)



Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Remove excess fat from chicken, and wash thoroughly  (sometimes I soak the chicken in a bath of water and kosher salt to get rid of the poultry-ish smell).  Place the chicken in a roasting pan.

In mini cuisinart, grind together the garlic, herbs and spices.  Rub this marinade on the chicken and under the skin. 

Pour about 1/4 cup  olive oil  and the sauce over the chicken. 

Scatter the olives and onions around the chicken. 

Bake uncovered for an hour, or until done.
