salt & pepper
liberally salt inside and out as long as you can before cooking. 4-12 hours before roasting is ideal, the longer the better. we have best results when we brine the chicken overnight, but it's still good even if you simply salt it right before cooking. poultry season applied very liberally works well but your favorite mix of herbs and spices will work great.

use a lot of salt, pepper and poultry seasoning and apply it at least 4 hours before cooking, 8-12 would be ideal.

Early in the pandemic when it was tough to get to Costco and everything seemed to be in short supply we started buying frozen whole chickens and roasting them ourselves. It's so easy and good! This is the recipe we have been using. We typically do 2 at time, eat one and debone and shred the other to freeze for use later. It's perfect for soup, enchiladas, salads, casseroles.... Our kids love it because we make gravy from the juice and bits that accumulate in the cast iron skillet--gravy is a hit at our house!
It was simple and delicious. The skin was crispy and the flavor was perfect. You can play with the herbs and seasoning. I didn’t salt is overnight bc I forgot. I salted it for about and hour.
