Delicious recipe Marie. We really enjoyed the roast chicken prepared this way. It was perfection, tender, juicy and very flavorful. Thank you so much for sharing yet another winner with all of us.
wow!!! We Loved it! Very easy..very delicious!!!I omitted the garlic,,actually by mistake...did everything else except sprinkled with McCormack Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning,,ran out of Belles...i like the greek flavors of lemon and a bit of oregano and lemon melted into the butter,,,my 7 lb or so roasted in about 11/2 hrs after lowering heat, Just a foolproof recipe!!!!....UPDATE<<<< I always use this recipe..for the cooking techniqueI...I recently made 2 6ib chickens as the recipe describes.. but i slathered them with a little olive oil and butter,,,sprinkled with thyme...they cooked in about 1 1/2 or so hours..always perfect.... I use different herbs for different meals....love this recipe....
IMPRESSIVE! The chicken turned out extremely juicy and very tasty.
OUTSTANDING! Use whatever spices you want. Just jamb the cavity with the veggies. I also put two pats of butter on each side of the breast under the skin. My five and a half pounder took two hours total and a seven pounder two and a half.
I was very impressed with this chicken. I didn't roast it though. I put it in my crockpot for 9hrs. I cut up all the veggies and stuffed it. Then put garlic and two slices of butter under the skin. Next, time when it gets cooler I will try and put in oven. I usually don't like chicken out of crockpot but this was good. Very flavorful.
i made this for the first time just last sunday, when relatives came over to spend father's day with us. to my surprise, it was really good! i also used Andi the grate's suggestion of using Belle's Poultry/Stuffing Seasoning (thanks!). this is definitely a keeper!
Wow! I made this last night for my husband and I. He and I were painting and staining all day and I just threw this in the oven to cook. Every time we went to the kitchen for something, the smell would make our stomachs growl. I was sure the neighbors were going to beat down the door to get at this chicken. And not only did it smell fantastic, my husband decsribed it as "the best chicken ever". I even ate the skin... I never eat the skin, but it was so crisp, buttery and fantastically seasoned. The only changes were that I used a 7lb. chicken (I have plenty of leftovers for #234493 Gumbo Recipe and #55282 Crock Pot Chicken or Turkey Stock Recipe)so I had to cook it for 2.5 hrs. And I rubbed some #69629 "Belles " Poultry/Stuffing Seasoning on the skin in addition to the butter, salt and pepper.
This is a very easy way to pepare a chicken and tasts so good! We loved it! So tender and juicy and the house smelled wonderful while it was baking! With the listed ingredients always on hand this will be made again and again! Thank you for a tasty recipe to add to my collection! :)
Yum... I wanted to make a Roast chicken to make my Roasted Chicken Pot Pie and yours caught my eye. This was an easy recipe, the chicken is moist and fell off the bones, the house smelled great.. the only downside, is that DH isn't much of a chicken lover, if he liked this chicken more the this would have gotten 5 stars and I would make it every fortnight. Please see my rating system: an excellent roast chicken recipe, easy instructions and great taste:) Thanks!
Great recipe, Sunday comfort food at its best! I love the flavors that the veggies imparted to the meat. The result was a delicious, moist roast chicken! I had purchased a large chicken, planning to roast it, slice or chop the meat and freeze it. I am glad this is one of the recipes I choose in roasting the chicken. The meat is moist, tender and just the right amount of flavor. I have the meat in the freezer and cannot wait to use it in various recipes. This recipe, of course, is top of the list for a great Sunday meal! Thanks Marie!
