1 4-5 lb. Fresh Chicken, giblets removed, cleaned and patted dry (if the chicken is not dry it will steam rather than roast)

3 Red Delicious apples, 1 cut in half and 2 cored and sliced
2 sprigs of rosemary

Place in oven.
Halfway through the cooking time, add the carrots, apples and thyme and continue cooking an additional 30 minutes.
Allow to rest 10-15 minutes before serving.
