Lemon Roasted Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Jubes

This is a very simple roasted chicken dish. Roast chicken is always a family favourite. Contains no flours so it is gluten free. The lemon flavour infuses as the chicken roasts and keeps the chicken beautifully moist. Can use 1 large chicken, as suggested, or use 2 smaller chickens. Photo of two smaller chickens totalling just over 2 kilos (1 lemon to stuff each chicken). Adjust cooking time if using different sized chickens

We enjoyed this very much. I did add some Lawry's Seasoning Salt. It was moist and delicious! Thanks for posting, Jubes. Made for ZWt 6.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Place the lemon halves into the chicken cavity and secure the legs with kitchen string.
  3. Brush the chicken with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Place on a wire rack in a roasting dish and cook for 65 minutes or until cooked thru and golden skinned. Stand 10 minutes after removing from the oven before serving.
  5. The lemon juice may run from the chicken- so either remove the lemons first or use a carving dish with a lip to catch the juice.
