  1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Then clean the chicken and remove excess fat.
  2. Thoroughly dry the chicken with paper towels and place it breast side up, on a rack set over a shallow roasting pan.
  3. Brush chicken with melted butter and then sprinkle with minced garlic.
  4. In a small bowl combine salt, basil, thyme, and pepper. Rub onto the chicken well with garlic as well.

  6. Tie the legs together, and tuck the wings under the body of the chicken.
  7. Roast, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Then reduce oven temperature to 200°C and continue to cook until done, for about 1 more hour and 10 minutes.
