Don’t you just love recipes where you only need a few ingredients? I certainly do and most of the recipes I share here are that way because of it, like this Balsamic Maple Whole Roasted Chicken.

This time of year, I tend to make a whole roasted chicken 2-3 times per month. It’s a win-win in the dinner planning game because we can usually sit down together as a family to enjoy a full meal with the whole roasted chicken; then it saves me time during the week because I get to use the leftovers to make some of our favorite recipes with the leftovers like soups, pot pies, casseroles and salads.

Recently, I made this Balsamic Maple Whole Roasted Chicken for Sunday dinner and besides the whole roaster, you will need balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, fresh rosemary and a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil. That’s it! Simple right?

To make this chicken, combine the vinegar, syrup, rosemary and oil in a small bowl and whisk together. Place your chicken in a roasting pan on top of a wire rack and season with salt and pepper. Next, brush the liquid mixture on top of the chicken and bake in a 375 degree F preheated oven for 1 1/2-2 hours depending on the size of your chicken. Mine was almost 8 lbs. and took almost 2 hours to cook.

The internal temperate of your chicken should be checked with a meat thermometer by inserting it into thickest part of the thigh, but not touching the bone and be at least 165° Fahrenheit (75° Celsius); however, I prefer our chicken to be at 180° Fahrenheit (82.2° Celsius). (Any pink in poultry just skeeves me out! 😉 ).

My family loved the flavor combination of balsamic and maple syrup on this chicken and the fresh rosemary added just a little extra woodsy flavor as well. ~Enjoy!
