4 pounds chicken, deboned (ask the butcher at your store to do this)
1 tsp salt
½ tsp lemon zest
¼ tsp dried thyme

In a small bowl mix salt, lemon zest and thyme.
Season the chicken with salt mixture and refrigerate for 1-3 hours.
Twenty minutes before roasting, remove the chicken from the refrigerator.
Set the oven to broil.
Place the chicken, skin side up, on a rimmed baking sheet. (line with aluminum foil for easier clean up)
Cook under broiler for 10 minutes, rotating the chicken every few minutes for even browning.
Lower the heat to 250ºF and cook for 25 minutes.
Remove the chicken from the oven and tent it with a foil. Let rest for 10 minutes.
