-Roast the bird 20 minutes or until the skin starts to color.  Baste the chicken with the juices found in the bottom of the pan and turn the oven down to 375°F. Continue to cook for 25 more minutes or until the juices from the chicken run clear.

-Pull out the chicken and let it rest for 20 minutes before carving.
