Herb Roasted Chicken Pieces

Yesterday at the grocery store I saw that whole roasters were on sale. Not wanting to tress and fuss with a whole bird, I asked the butcher if she would cut it into pieces for me (one less thing for me to do). When I got home I used a few simple ingredients, threw it in the roasting pan an voila, perfect roasted chicken.

Herb Roasted Chicken

1 4-5 lb. chicken cut into pieces
3 Tbs. olive oil
2 tsp fresh thyme
2 tsp. fresh parsley
2 tsp. fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400
Put chicken in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and put into a roasting pan. Roast for about 1 hour or until juices run clear.

That chicken looks so good. I bet it would be good as left-overs, too... if it doesn't dissapear right away.

I feel like a dork, but I've never thought to ask the butcher to cut the whole chicken for me. I just roast the whole thing, or buy pieces. It would be so much easier to do weeknight cooking with pieces like this!
