- 2 (3 1/2-pound) whole chickens (raw, with skin)
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
- 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 4 small shallots, halved, peeled, and separated

- 6 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch lengths

- 2. Truss chickens: Tuck wings under the chicken, tie drumsticks together with kitchen string; tie another string around the back end of the chicken, securing the wings and thighs. Rub each chicken with 1 tablespoon olive oil, half the lemon zest, and half the thyme. Season each chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and place them in a large roasting pan. Toss the shallots, potatoes, carrots, and turnips with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl; add to the roasting pan.

- 4. Remove the chickens from roasting pan, and let stand for 10 minutes before carving. Toss vegetables with pan juices. Drain excess juice.
- 5. Carve the chickens, arrange on a platter with vegetables, and serve hot.
