Roast Chicken Spice Rub

I love to roast chickens.  I tend to vary my method everytime I make one, but this is a nice rub that I created recently from our herb garden.

Roast Chicken Spice Rub
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp lemon zest

Mix all ingredients in a spice grinder.  Carefully coat chicken under and over skin, inside and out with EVOO and rub mixture all over.  Stuff with bay leaves and rosemary sprigs for additional flavors.
