Roasting a chicken is a great way to enjoy a delicious meal. To start, take a whole chicken and season it with salt and pepper. Place the chicken in a roasting pan and rub olive oil over the top. Place the pan in the oven, preheated to 375°F, and cook for 1 1/2 hours. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Once cooked, let it rest for 10 minutes before serving.
