Salt and Pepper Roasted Chicken

I have made this recipe several times now, and it just keeps getting better and better. I used to try to put all sorts of spices on top of the chicken, stuffed inside of the chicken, stuffed in between the skin and the chicken (not that there is anything wrong with any of that), but this is a simple way to have roasted chicken even on a weeknight - golden brown, juicy and delicious.
