This is the best roast chicken I've ever had. I made two changes - I stuffed the chicken cavity with a sliced whole onion and lemons and I stuffed sliced lemon under the skin of the breast meat. I've never had chicken this moist and so flavorful! This is a new family favorite, thanks!

Very tasty, although I had a hard time finding the specific kinds of paprika in the recipe and had to use the plain old stuff. I roasted some potatoes with it, and it made a wonderful zesty gravy also!!!

Well Dave Caster you certainly have yourself one delicious bird here! I hadn't roast a chicken in sometime, but I knew there was a lemon / garlic recipe out there that I had previously used and enjoyed... this was it! This oh-so-simple way of roasting a chicken is nothing short of a classic recipe in our kitchen from now on. The bird had a wonderful enhancing not overpowering flavor, the skin was crisp and the meat was especially moist. I also, couldn't find the difference in paprika so I used Spanish, and it was bang on. I'm submitting a photo of this "Chick" in appreciation of your sharing such a wonderful recipe!

Great recipe, very easy to make, the smell alone already attracted my children. The flavor was great. We served it with Basmati rice.

Excellent. I did not have the sweet or hot paprika, so I also just used the plain paprika I had on hand, and it still came out great. My whole family really liked this chicken. I will definately make it again.

I made it with drumsticks. They came out very flavorful and moist. Even DH who doesn't like drumsticks enjoyed them. A nice recipe for turning the US dullest meat into something yummy. Thanks for posting
