BEST Roast Chicken

When I say this truly is the BEST roast chicken recipe, I mean it. My mom used to make this at least one Sunday a month. It's just so easy to pop in the oven and let it bake at a low temperature for a few hours. Of course, putting in your favorite winter vegetables make this a one pan meal that you just can't resist.
