Pollo Arrosto (whole roasted chicken)

4 cups of white balsamic vinegar
8 tbsps honey
2 tbsps of parseley, sage, rosemary, thyme, basil, salt and pepper (use fresh herbs whenever possible)

Mix with a fork all ingredients in the bottom of a roasting pan. Take out whole chicken and place in pan to marinate for 30 minutes on each side. Re-baste occasionally.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place chicken on a rack, legs down. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes per pound, half of the time on each side. (For example, a 5lb chicken needs 1 hour, 40 minutes. Bake for 50 minutes on each side.) Re-baste with mixture every 20-30 minutes.

Once time is up, remove foil, heat oven to 425 degrees and crisp/brown the skin for 6-10 minutes.

Remove. Let it stand for 5 minutes. Cut into pieces and serve.
