Brine the chicken according to recipe directions. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels after it's done brining.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Tuck the chicken wings underneath the breast. Stuff the chicken cavity with the rosemary and thyme sprigs, onion and lemon.
Tie the chicken legs together with kitchen twine.
Place the butter, garlic, minced thyme, rosemary and parsley, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Stir to combine.
Loosen the skin of the chicken breast. Rub the butter mixture all over the chicken, both on the outside of the chicken and underneath the skin.
Place the chicken in a roasting pan. Cook for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh registers 165 degrees F.
Check on your chicken every 20 minutes - if the skin is getting overly dark, cover the chicken with foil.
Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before carving. Serve with pan drippings.
