Chicken has nutrients that have a calming effect on your body and are great for reducing stress – tryptophan, Vitamin B6 and B5. Rosemary contains Carnosol and Carnosic acid – two powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds that have been linked to reducing inflammation of muscles, blood vessels, and joints.

Ingredients

  • 1 (4 pound) whole chicken
  • 6 potatoes, cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Place chicken and potatoes into a large bowl. Pour olive oil over them, and stir to coat.
  • Place the chicken and potato pieces in a large baking dish, or cookie sheet with sides. Sprinkle with rosemary, oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, uncovered. Baste during the last 15 minutes for extra crispness.
