Roasted Chicken for Dinner Tonight

1 - 7 lb roaster chicken
3/4 tsp rubbed sage
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp rosemary leaves
1/2 tsp thyme leaves
1/2 tsp coarse ground black pepper
3/4 tsp parsley flakes
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
2 tsp olive oil
1 orange sliced into thin slices

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Rinse chicken under water and place in a 9 x 13" baking dish.  Slice orange into very thin slices.  Do not peel and do not use ends.  

Lift skin on chicken to separate from meat.  Combine all spices with olive oil in a small bowl.  Rub spice mixture under skin and all over skin to season chicken.  Stuff all orange slices into chicken.

Bake for 2 1/4 hours.  Remove from oven and let sit for 15 minutes before serving.  

Luke told me this was the best chicken ever!
