3. Set the oven at 400 degrees. Remove chicken from the refrigerator 30 minutes before roasting.

4. In a bowl, toss the carrots, potatoes, and onions with salt, the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, and the remaining chopped thyme, rosemary, and sage.

5. Transfer the chicken and orange slices to a roasting pan, reserving the marinade. Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with salt. Set it skin side up in the pan, arranging the vegetables around it (things will be very snug but shrink during cooking). Scrape the reserved marinade over the chicken and the vegetables, distributing it evenly.

6. Roast the chicken and vegetables for 30 minutes. Baste with the pan juices and continue roasting, basting every 10 minutes, for 35 minutes more, or until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is golden. Total roasting time is 65 minutes.

7. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let it sit for 5 minutes.

8. Meanwhile, tipping the roasting pan with a potholder, spoon the fat off the cooking juices. Cut each breast in half. Transfer all the chicken pieces, vegetables, and orange slices to a warm platter. Spoon the cooking juices on top. Garnish with fresh herbs.
