I know there’s no chicken in that ingredient picture. I think raw chicken is one of the least beautiful things in the food world. The roasted whole chicken doesn’t look much better.
Thank goodness it tastes wonderful! This can be a main dish for a really nice dinner, but it’s super easy to make. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 whole chicken
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
- 1 tsp. thyme
- salt and pepper to taste
Wash the chicken and place it in a casserole dish or roasting pan. Mix the other ingredients together and then rub the dressing onto the chicken. If you have extra, drizzle it over the top. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours, or until done.

I’ve used olive oil and rosemary on my roasted chicken but have never added wine. I’ll try that next time! Thanks.
I can’t wait to try this recipe! Question: The recipe just says white wine, but the picture shows Moscato. Is that what I should use? It’s not too sweet?
Kathryn – you could use Moscato or any other white wine. It really is a matter of preference in terms of which one you go with, but we would love to hear your preference!!
What was the weight og the chicken yu used in tis recipe ? My chiken isbeteen3-4 lb and I think it would take a bit longer than 1 1/2 hours -recipe looks good I just don’t want raw ugly:) chicken–thanks!
Tiffany King says
Mine was probably about that size as well, but definitely cook it until it is done. I”ve had chicken take longer than a recipe stated. I think it’s because the chicken is just colder or larger or the other ingredients are cold.
Have to add to my list!
