  • 1 whole chicken (3-4 lbs)
  • 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons of dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons of dried rosemary
  • 1/4 cup of white wine
  • 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 cup freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper


Start by preheating your oven to 375°F. Pat the chicken down with paper towels to dry it and then place it in a shallow roasting pan. Rub the olive oil over the chicken and massage it in so that it’s evenly coated.

Then mix the oregano, rosemary, crushed red pepper, sea salt, and black pepper together. Sprinkle the mixture all over the chicken, making sure to cover it evenly. Drizzle the white wine on the chicken and around the edges of the pan, and lastly, sprinkle the chopped parsley over the top.

Bake the chicken for about 1 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature is 165°F. To ensure even cooking, baste the chicken with its juices every 15 minutes.
