Wonderful recipe! I made the following substitutions - lemon juice for lemons, jarred minced garlic for the garlic cloves and Old Bay for the poultry seasoning. Did not use rosemary as we are not a big fans. I used a 6.3 lb chicken and it came out very moist. The butter under the skin was a help I'm sure. For a gal who doesn't roast many chickens (we usually put them on the BBQ) I was very happy. This is going in my recipe book! Thank you :)
What a fabulous simple recipe! The taste was outstanding and my whole family enjoyed it. It was so enjoyable for my dh who is normally very picky that he called me at work and asked for chicken this way again. He never does that. I loved the tang of the lemon, the herbs. I did use dried rosemary since I didn't have any fresh, but it was still fabulous. This was made for Fall PAC 2008.
