Be Gone, Boring Chicken! These 9 Roast Chicken Recipes are Perfect for Dinner


Every home cook needs a go-to chicken recipe. And we’ve curated nine delicious takes on roast chicken that work for weeknight dinners, holiday get-togethers and everything in between. 


Rosemary Roasted Chicken

Whether you’re roasting your first whole chicken or just need a new Sunday night staple, rosemary-seasoned roast chicken deserves a spot in your meal plan. This recipe keeps it simple, looking to rosemary, salt and thyme to add savory, well-balanced flavor that doesn’t overpower this meat. It’s classic, so it works with virtually any side, from Garlic Green Beans to Bacon and Chive Mashed Potatoes


Rotisserie Roasted Chicken with Potatoes

Looking for a stress-free weeknight dinner? We’ve got the ideal recipe right here. It uses McCormick Perfect Pinch Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning — a zesty mix of paprika, garlic and onion — to give each bite a takeout-inspired flavor. Your meal can go from fridge to table in just 40 minutes. And, because it’s a one-pan meal, there’s very little cleanup. 


Sage Rubbed Chicken

Sometimes, the simplest recipes are some of the most delicious — and this four-ingredient recipe proves you don’t need anything more than pantry staples to make delicious chicken. Pepper, sage and seasoned salt infuse your chicken with cozy, savory flavor for a classic main course that works well with any side. 


Roasted Chicken with Herbes De Provence

The best dinners are the ones that look fancy but are deceptively simple to make, and this roasted chicken recipe fits the bill perfectly. Seasoning your chicken with herbes de Provence — a blend that includes rosemary, savory, marjoram, thyme and sage — allows you to add complex earthy and herbaceous flavor to your chicken, without spending lots of time measuring out seasonings. Paired with onions, carrots and potatoes, this makes a complete meal that’s sure to please any crowd. 


Herb Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

The right herb-roasted chicken recipe is like your fave pair of jeans: comforting, works with everything and never goes out of style. A blend of parsley, thyme and garlic powder create a balanced season that adds oomph to each bite while letting the chicken’s natural flavors shine, while seasoned potatoes make it into a meal. Plus, roasting the chicken on high heat cuts down on the cooking time, allowing you to get dinner on the table in just 45 minutes. 


Roasted Chicken and Potatoes with Rosemary

If you’re looking to upgrade humble chicken thighs, rosemary and paprika are a match made in heaven. The rosemary adds cozy warming notes, while paprika adds zestiness, along with a gorgeous red hue. This recipe uses the same seasoning on both the chicken and the potatoes for a consistent flavor palette throughout the meal 


Greek Roasted Chicken and Tomatoes

If you’ve never tried oven-roasting chicken with tomatoes, you’ve been missing out. Hearty plum tomatoes get tender and intensely sweet in the oven, adding unexpected sweetness to your roast chicken dinner. This Greek-inspired recipe amps up the flavor even more with salty olives and feta. The result is a mix of contrasting flavors and textures that’s absolutely delicious. 


Lemon Rosemary Roasted Chicken

Lemon adds brightness to any chicken dish, and this lemony roast chicken is ideal for the spring and summer. Pairing lemon with rosemary gives you the best of both worlds: Rosemary makes it savory and comforting, while lemon lightens the dish. Best of all, you can make it even if you don’t have lemons on hand, thanks to Lawry's Lemon Pepper Blend.


Thyme Roasted Chicken with Cranberry Orange Couscous

Looking for a more adventurous take on roast chicken? Try this sweet-and-savory option to expand your palette. This recipe pairs unexpected ingredients to add contrast and interest to your meal. There’s the herb-infused roast chicken on top — savory, tender and juicy — and the sweet-tart couscous underneath. The combination of cranberries and orange give this dish a festive flair that makes it ideal for the holidays, but it works anytime you need a crowd-pleasing dish.
