  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Place whole chicken (giblets and neck removed, if necessary) breast side up in a roasting pan. Rub olive oil, salt, pepper, and some fresh thyme (removed from stem) all over the outside of the bird. Roast for approximately 70-80 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165F. Remove from the oven and allow it to sit for about 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine ¼ cup mayonnaise with 2 tbsp pureed pumpkin, a generous pinch of paprika, and salt, to taste.
  4. To serve, shred or slice chicken. Toast dinner rolls. On one side of each roll, spread some pumpkin mayo. On the other side, spread cranberry sauce. Top with chicken and serve.
  5. Optional: Turn it into a grilled sandwich! Add a slice of your favorite cheese to each sandwich, and heat on a griddle until melted and warm throughout.
