    Al Al's Note:

    This is actually from Cooking Light, not my grandma, but it is moist and delicious and quite easy. If your chicken is on the small side, don't use quite as many veggies--they won't all fit. :)

      Lovely roast chicken. Wonderful crisp skin and juicy and tender inside. Mine was about 3 pounds so I just used the onion and celery and garlic in the cavity. Lovely flavour and i will be making it again, thanks for posting.

      Excellent roast chicken. Crispy outside, moist inside, and the seasoning was just right - not too heavy to miss the juicy flavor of the chicken itself. Thanks for posting this keeper.
