Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour, or until it comes to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C).

Using a paring knife, cut out the wishbone from the chicken. Truss the chicken. Generously season the outside and the cavity of the chicken with salt. pepper and thyme. Roast for 45 to 60 minutes or until the temperature registers 160°F (71°C) in the thickest part of the thigh and the juices run clear.

Transfer the chicken to a carving board and allow to rest for 15 to 20 minutes, while you make the sauce. Pour the drippings from the chicken into a small sauce pan and add the shallot. Saute over medium heat for 5 minutes, then add the chicken stock and reduce for about 5 minutes. Add the mustard and stir to combine. Use the butter to enrich the sauce, add one tbsp at a time until thickened and glossy.

Carve the chicken and pour over the pan sauce. Serve.
