Tuck the wings behind the breasts, then tick in the legs so the bottoms of the drumsticks are pointed away from the body of the chicken is as flat as possible.
Brush all sides of both pieces of chicken with the garlic oil using rosemary brush. Sprinkle all sides with chopped rosemary leaves, salt, and pepper.
