Peach Glaze Roasted Chicken is everything you could want in a chicken dinner and more. A deliciously sticky, homemade peach glaze is basted over a whole chicken roasting away. With the addition of fresh herbs, this roasted chicken is one to remember! Imagine your Summer and Fall tastebuds coming together in one, decadent bite.
Tips for Roasting a Whole Chicken
I know, I know, roasting a whole chicken can seem like a daunting task, but you’ve totally got this! It is much easier than it looks or sounds. Follow along with a few simple tips to get a scrumptious outcome:
- Always pat the chicken skin dry before adding any seasoning. Sounds weird, right? I know, but trust me! Patting the chicken dry with a paper towel makes sure that you have a nice, golden brown outcome.
- Have the correct utensils handy. One of the biggest fears when it comes to a whole chicken is getting it cooked all the way through. Solution: a meat thermometer! You want to insert it into the deepest part of the meat and get a temp read of 165 to be good to go.
- Give yourself time. Roasting a chicken is simple, yes, but it does take a little bit extra time than pieced chicken. Plan on an hour and a half to give yourself enough cushion.
- Enjoy it! There’s something so gratifying about pulling a golden brown chicken out of the oven for dinner. Just call me Martha Stewart.

How to Get that Peach Flavor
When it comes to getting a full peach flavor in this dish, there’s two ways you can go about it.
When making the glaze you can use either: Peach Butter or Peach Jam/Preserves. You really can’t go wrong with either option! The chicken also roasts in a pan with fresh peach slices which hits the ball home.
Roasting a chicken is such a satisfying and delicious dinner. You really can’t go wrong with this fun twist on a classic!
