Preheat the oven to 425°F.
In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, parsley, rosemary, thyme, lemon zest and juice. Brush 2 tablespoons of the herb oil over the skin of the chicken. Rub 2 tablespoons of the herb oil inside the cavity. Season chicken, inside and out, with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Place the lemon halves inside the cavity. Tuck the wings under the chicken and tie the legs together with kitchen twine. Place the chicken on a rack in a large roasting pan.
