  • Summary

    Flavorful, aromatic easy oven roasted chicken recipe with thyme olive oil and mushrooms. Skip the mushrooms if you like and add potatoes or root vegetables instead. I think the mushrooms add some moisture to the pan and I like it that way.

    Ingredients

    • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    • 1 Teaspoon Salt
    • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
    • 2 Tablespoon fresh Thyme (packed)
    • 1 Whole Chicken (broiler type *see post for size)
    • 8.8 ounces Mushrooms (whole or halved)
    • 3-4 Shallots (cut into pieces)
    • 3 cloves Garlic (cut roughly or sliced)
    • 1 1/4 cup Water
