    V'nut-Beyond Redemption's Note:

    I modified slightly the recipe from Bill Granger's Bills Food. I love the recipe as it is pretty simple to make and the actual hands-on preparation work is perhaps just 10 - 15 mins. I get raves where ever I serve the chicken. I hope you will like it. I sometimes serve it with Roasted Butternut Squash. My friend saw the legs tied with kitchen twine and screamed "Bondage Chicken!!". This is part of my low-carbo recipes file.

      I saw your beautiful photo of this tasty chicken and knew I would have to give it a try. Very flavorful and moist! I didn't change a thing about the recipeexcept to cook just a bit longer than suggested as my chicken was rather large. The lemon and rosemary add a wonderful flavor to the chicken. The skin turned out a beautiful crusty brown. Absolutely delightful! Thanks for a wonderful recipe, Velvetinenut!

      Wonderful flavor, and definitely easy to prepare; I didn't even truss the poor bird. I rubbed butter over it before I seasoned, and I used oregano and a little rosemary. I was going to add a few cloves of garlic with the lemon, but I forgot, and I didn't miss it. I also used kosher salt, which I think was good for this recipe. As it suggests in Joy of Cooking, I preheated the oven to 450 degrees, and lowered it to 350 when I put the bird in. Roasting time is about 20 minutes per pound. I think broiling a few minutes at the end would be a great idea. I'll try it next time. Thank you, Velvetinenut, for a flavorful chicken recipe!
