    We use a mixture of savory spices, including (but not limited to) Italian seasoning, lemon pepper, onion powder, salt and pepper. You can use cumin or hot rubs, but be careful not to overpower the rosemary and thyme.

  2. Peel garlic cloves.
  3. Stuff 1/2 of the garlic cloves, the thyme, and the rosemary into the chicken's cavity.
  4. Rub outside of chicken with olive oil and rubbing herbs.
