Absolutely WONDERFUL! This recipe is easy and produces delicious results! I roasted 2 chickens (4 lbs each) - I figured if I was going to take the time to prep and roast one, I might as well do two! It's just so inexpensive and TASTY! We had another couple over for dinner and I was so impressed with how beautifully this chicken turned out! It looked so impressive (not really anything I did! This was my first roasted chicken - I was SHOCKED!) The subtle lemon flavor is excellent and the meat is unbelievably moist and tender! I love that I can cook once and have chicken ready for dinners for the rest of the week!!!! Here's how I used the rest of the chicken: Night #2 - enchiladas. Night #3 - chicken noodle soup (broth made from chicken carcasses). Night #4 - chicken potpie. Thanks so much, Kittenkal! This recipe will be used at our house again and again!
Without a doubt, best roast chicken I have ever made. Winner winner - chicken dinner. ;)
I don't use any other recipe for whole chicken. I've been using this recipe for years with the help of Kittencal. She is a lifesaver and I've never had a bad dish using her expert cooking advice.
I don't know where you get all these good recipes, however, if you have one that is what I am looking for it's the one to use! I enjoy cooking and have been doing it for a long time now. <br/>This recipe is no exception. Thank you so much for sharing with all of us.
Easy and delicious, but not as crispy as hoped...maybe I was impatient and didn't preheat long enough. I substituted smoked paprika for the cayenne and it was delish, plus gave the bird a lovely color. Will be trying again, maybe with rosemary in the cavity as well as lemon
D LISH is all I have to say....I added some water in the pan along with some potatoes and carrots that I sprinkled with some season salt and the chicken just came out soo juicy and flavorful. YUM!
The skin on this chicken was crunchy and tasty! Love this recipe and it will be my new whole chicken go-to recipe. Thanks!
So juicy and tender. OMG. I love this chicken.
Very good. I used 7 lb chicken and it was delish. I did have a hard time getting the spices to stay on though, but all and all very tasty!
