Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F Tie chicken legs together with kitchen twine (tuck wings under chicken, if desired, for neater presentation). Place chicken on a rack set in a roasting pan (or on a rimmed baking sheet - I used a Pyrex pan).
  2. Rub chicken all over with butter; season with salt and pepper. Roast until an instant-read thermometer registers 160 F when inserted in the thickest part of the thigh (avoiding the bone), 45-50 minutes. Serve, or let cool before refrigerating, up to three days, covered.
