Step 1

Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Place the peeled and chunked potatoes in a large pot of salted water and bring to a boil. Cook for about 5-7 minutes until they are slightly tender. Drain the potatoes and let them dry completely.

Step 2

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels, inside and out. Rub the outside of the chicken with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, then sprinkle with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, dried thyme, and rosemary. Ensure the seasoning is evenly distributed. If desired, truss the chicken by tying the legs together with kitchen twine. This helps the chicken cook evenly.

Step 3

Place the seasoned chicken in a roasting pan breast side up. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Roast in the preheated oven for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C) when measured with a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh without touching the bone.

Step 4

While the chicken is roasting, toss the parboiled potatoes with the remaining olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread them out on a baking sheet in a single layer. About 30 minutes before the chicken is done, place the potatoes in the oven and roast them until they are golden and crispy about 25-30 minutes.

Step 5

Once the chicken is cooked through, remove it from the oven and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring juicy meat. Serve the roast chicken with the crispy potatoes alongside.
