STEP 1: 
Brush
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.

STEP 3: 
Roast
Roast for 15 minutes, and then reduce the heat to 350°F. Baste the chicken with the pan juices every 20 minutes. Roast until the chicken juices run clear, the legs move easily when wiggled and a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh registers 170°F. This will take about 1¼ to 2 hours for a 3- to 4-pound broiler or 2½ to 3 hours for a 5- to 7-pound roaster. Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
