You'll need
  • 2 Tbsp chopped rosemary
  • 2 Tbsp chopped thyme
  • 2 Tbsp chopped sage
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
Directions 
1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Place herbs, salt, and pepper in a small bowl, and mix well.
3. Loosen the chicken skin at the neck end by placing your finger between skin and the meat, gently pressing skin away from meat. Press herb mixture between skin and meat. Rub the outside of the bird with oil.
