Heat the oven to 425°F. Bring the chicken out of the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking and pat it dry.
Place chicken in a large bowl and drizzle with oil, salt, pepper, and any optional spices. Stir to coat. Place chicken on a rimmed baking sheet (don't crowd it).
Place in oven and roast for 30-35 minutes, until the chicken registers an internal temperature of 160°F. Turn on the broiler and place pan under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes to crisp up the skin.
Remove chicken from oven and rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
