Simple Roasted Chicken & Potatoes - KJ & Company

This Simple Roasted Chicken & Potatoes is just that: simply a roasted chicken and potatoes. No frills here, but honest flavors that make your heart happy.



  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Place the potatoes and the onions in an even layer on the bottom of large dutch oven (I used a 7 quart). Place the chicken on top of the onions and potatoes and pat the skin dry with a paper towel.
  2. Evenly season the chicken with the seasoned salt, dried thyme and dried rosemary. Place the lid on the dutch oven and roast the chicken for 45 minutes.
  3. After 45 minutes, reduce the oven heat to 400 and remove the lid. Roast the chicken for another 45-60 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into the middle reads 165 degrees. Make sure you baste the chicken and the potatoes with the juices in the bottom of the pan every 10 minutes or so within the last 45-60 minutes of cooking. This will ensure a crispy skin on the chicken and keep it from drying out.
  4. Enjoy!
