French Herb Roast Chicken

This dry rub works well with our Ultimate Roast Chicken or Best Last-Minute Roast Chicken recipes because it keeps the skin crisp. Serve with Crispy Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus.

For the French Herb rub, combine 2 tbsp. each coarsely chopped fresh tarragon leaves and chives; set half aside. In step 2, distribute half the chopped herbs in chicken pockets. When chicken comes out of the oven, brush with a small amount of pan juices, then scatter remaining herbs over it.
