Nothing says cozy and comforting than a JUICY Simple Roast Chicken (With Garlic and Veggies). This recipe has always been a family favorite because it’s made in one pan, which means, easy cleanup! The crispy and buttery skin along with the hearty veggies will please everyone at the table!

What’s The Difference Between Baking and Roasting Chicken?

The difference between baking and roasting depends on what you’re cooking and the temperature of the oven. For the cooking process, roasting usually requires a higher oven temperature of above 400°F while baking takes place at lower oven temperatures around 375°F and below. Roasting is also usually done with larger cuts of meat such as beef tenderloin, whole chicken or turkeys, and vegetables.

Do You Cover The Chicken When Roasting?

I always roast my chicken uncovered for the majority of the time so the skin gets crispy and golden brown. If the chicken starts to get too dark before it reaches the proper internal temperature, you can tent a piece of foil over or place the dutch oven lid on the top to protect the skin from burning.

Common Reader Questions

Simple Roast Chicken (With Garlic and Veggies): FAQs

Can I roast the vegetables and chicken together?

Yes! It is important to handle the chicken safely. I would recommend using a different knife and cutting board to cut the veggies and chicken. Roast the chicken until it reaches 165F. Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature in the thickest part of the bird. The vegetables will reach 165F more quickly than the chicken. This will kill any pathogens that come from the juice of the chicken that may not be cooked.

What is the roasting time for a whole chicken?

For a 5-6 pound whole chicken, roast at 425F for 90 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165F.

How to correctly carve a chicken?

Be sure to visit this step-by-step video to check out the method I use to carve a chicken.

How to not dry out the chicken?

Make sure to keep an eye on the chicken during the cooking process. If the chicken becomes too brown and dry, then tent a piece of foil over the chicken. This will ensure you will get a juicy chicken.

Should you flip the chicken during the cooking process?

I do not flip the chicken during the cooking process. I simply roast the breast side up and cook until the internal temperature reaches 165F.

    Such a delicious and healthy meal!

  2. Heather says:

    Hi there! This looks delicious. I just roasted my first chicken in a dutch oven and the recipe I used had me flip the chicken – TWICE during the cooking process. It was somewhat scarring. I saw that you left that out of the instructions – was I duped? Or is that just for a different size pan? Thanks so much!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      I never flip my chicken. I always roast my chicken breast side up and cook until the thickest part of the chicken reaches 165F.

  3. Courtney says:

    Hi! This looks so tasty and I’m looking forward to trying it. This will be the first whole chicken I’ve roasted. How many carrots woudl you recommend? It’s not listed in the ingredients/recipe section.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      HI Courtney,

      I use several since my family loves them. Its really personal preference. Thanks so much for the question.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Hi Deanna,
