A recipe from the Food Network's, Sara Moulton called Blasted Chicken. It is cooked in a 450° oven for 45 minutes, so it takes little time to have roasted chicken on the table for dinner.
Clean out giblets, etc. from the chicken cavity and brush olive oil all over the chicken. Salt and pepper the skin of the chicken and place in a heavy roasting pan, uncovered. Place in a preheated oven at 450° for 45 minute or until a meat thermometer registers 165-170° when inserted into the leg-thigh joint or the juices run clear. Cover with aluminum foil and let it rest for 15 minutes before carving.
