      I made this last night for supper club. I had two chickens, but only had 3 lemons, and 1 head of garlic, so I had to improvise. I used dried chopped garlic from penzey's inside one of the chickens instead of whole garlic cloves. Then, I put both chickens in my turkey roaster (covered) and put it in the oven at 450 for 20 minutes. I then lowered temp to 335 for an hour. Pulled off lid, Poured juice of one lemon and 3/4 chardonney over the top, then a couples pats of butter. cooked for another 15 minutes. Pulled chickens out of pan... leaving some yummy panjuices. So I sauted fennel and asparagus in the juices. AWESOME! What an incredible meal!

      I'm sorry to be critical since there are so many 5 star reviews. I followed recipe as written and found it sort of bland.

      Wonderful! We all loved this chicken recipe. It was a change from our usual way I make chicken. The lemon flavor isn't that strong and that was perfect with us. I really was hoping for a very light lemon flavor and that what I got! This was very easy to put together, thanks for posting this one!
