  • Bowl
  • baking pan


  • 1 whole chicken
  • 5 potatoes

For the marinade:

  • 2 tbsp granulated garlic
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 3 tbsp Italian herbs
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper


  • First, you have to marinate the chicken as I mentioned in the article above.
  • When you take it off the fridge leave 30 minutes to rest at room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven at 180C.
  • Place the chicken breast-side up into the baking tray and roast for about 1h10min hour.
  • I have placed some halves of potatoes, under the whole chicken, to obtain crispy and golden-color potatoes from the burning fat.
  • When the chicken is roasted let it cool down for about 10 minutes, and then serve immediately next to the roasted potatoes.
