Remove chicken from packaging, remove entrails from chicken cavity (if any) and rinse chicken in cool water.
Place chicken in a roasting pan, using a small "rack" to elevate chicken so it's not sitting in the bottom of the pan.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Spread butter in top of chicken (don't double dip back into the butter after touching the chicken!)
Sprinkle Herbs de Provence all over chicken.
Add water to cover the bottom of the pan.
Place chicken in the oven and cook for two hours, using a large spoon to baste with juices periodically.
When chicken is done (don't be afraid to overcook a bit, as long as you're basting), remove from oven, cut, and serve!
