    A ridiculously easy dish! If you want to complicate things a bit more you can brine the bird afore hand.

      Wonderfully moist and tasty chicken! I only used a breast on the bone and added some rosemary and garlic cloves as well as potatoes to the baking dish. The whole house smelled heavenly and the grapefruit juice together with the onions and garlic made a lovely pan sauce. Will make again, thanks for posting! Made and reviewed for the Spanish/Portuguese Forum ~El Pomelo - June 2012~.

      I had two grapefruits I wanted to use up so I stuffed the cavity with one of the grapefruits, quartered of course, and used the other one to baste the chicken. The chicken was fantastic, crispy skin with a little stickiness to it from the grapefruit, but honestly, I could hardly tell there was grapefruit present.

      This has to be one of the juiciest chickens I have ever made. Super easy even my 10 year old could make. She helped me watch it. I will be making this again. TY very much for a wonderful dinner.
