This is a recipe my SIL showed me how to prepare. I've modified it a little for my tastes.

The taste was delicious and light. Only thing I did that wasn't mentioned, was I rubbed all herbs/spices under the skin as well. Served with mashed potatoes and Kentucky Wonder green beans for a lovely Sunday evening meal. Thanks Annie H!

Great recipe and picture perfect bird! I made this as directed and it worked great. The chicken was flavourful and the leftovers made a wonderful sandwich. Thanks for posting:)

This recipe works well with a beef or lamb roast of any kind. I put mine into an oven roasting bag with no fluids or oil, and cook it in the crockpot.
