      Delicious!! It came out perfectly browned with nice, crispy skin. The meat was moist and very flavorful. I skimmed the fat off the pan juices and made a very tasty gravy. This recipe is definately a keeper!

      Lemon rubbed on roast chicken? YES! While the chicken didn't really taste "lemony", the juice gave it a nice clean and fresh flavor. I also loved the garlic which made for some delicious tasting pan juices to serve over everything on our plate. I added some quartered red potatoes to the pan and they were perfectly done at the same time as the chicken, and were delicious mashed up with those garlicky juices. I also added some dried rosemary inside the chicken and sprinkled on the top as well as on the potatoes. My DH and I smiled and toasted to you Marie; thanks for a wonderful meal!
