To roast the chicken

  • Then heat big green egg up to 350 degrees. Place two cups of water in the bottom of the roasting pan. Season the chicken with salt and place in your big green egg. Roast roughly for 1 1/2-2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees in the thigh of the chicken (if you need to add more water in the bottom of the pan while roasting feel free to). Take out the chickens and allow to rest for at least 20 minutes. Carve, serve and enjoy!
