    **Jubes**'s Note:

    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

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
    2. 2
      Place the lemon halves into the chicken cavity and secure the legs with kitchen string.
    3. 3
      Brush the chicken with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    4. 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. 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.

      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.

      This is very tasty! I made as directed except that I BBQ'd this on the rotisserie. I really liked the simplicity and moistness of this. I had this with mixed veggies and Grilled Bread With Tomato. Very very good! Made for the No-Nonsense Nibblers for ZWT6. Thanks ***Jubes***! :)

      Such a wondeful and easy addition to add when roasting chicken. I found that the chicken seemed a little more succulent and tender. The chicken had a fantastic light Lemoney taste through it. For just a few extra minutes work beforehand, you get such a wonderful and great tasting roast chicken. Who would of thought something so easy could make such a difference!! Great recipe **Jubes**. This is my new way of roasting chicken!!! Thanks.
