The Royal Wedding is coming up! To kick off our week-long celebration of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tying the knot, we've got a Royal Roasted Chicken recipe that will make you feel like you're part of the big day. This roasted chicken recipe is easy, and delicious. Filled with the flavors of thyme and lemon, it's sure to be a dream come true for any princess and prince looking for love.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (4- to 5-pound) whole chicken
  • 20 sprigs fresh thyme, divided
  • 1 lemon, cut in half
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 4 carrots, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 8 red potatoes, cut in half
  • 1 onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 
  2. Stuff cavity of chicken with 10 sprigs of thyme, lemon, and garlic. Using kitchen twine, tie legs together and tuck wing tips under the breast to secure. Place chicken in a large roasting pan.
  3. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, salt, pepper, and paprika; mix well. In a large bowl, combine carrots, potatoes, and onion. Toss the vegetables with half the butter mixture and the remaining 10 sprigs of thyme.
  4.  Brush remaining butter mixture on the outside of the chicken. Place the vegetables around the chicken in the roasting pan.
  5. Roast 1-1/2 hours or until the juices in the chicken run clear (internal temperature should be 165 degrees) and the vegetables are tender. Allow chicken to rest 10 minutes before carving. Place on platter surrounded by roasted vegetables.
