    CulinaryQueen's Note:

    Got this from my cousin-in-law Doreen. The chicken cooks for 2 1/2 hours and comes out so moist. There will be plenty of juice from the meat to make a gravy. Serve with mashed potatoes and your favorite veggie. Great weekend meal for those upcoming cold evenings. Cooking time includes the 20 minute sitting time in step 11.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 180C/350°F

      Line a 9" X 13" glass baking dish with a very large piece of foil, big enough to wrap up the chicken.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, mix the parsley, thyme and rosemary.
    4. 4
      Rinse the chicken and pat the outside dry with paper(kitchen)towels. Place in the lined baking dish.
    5. 5
      Squeeze the juice from the wedged lemon inside the chicken and then put the lemon wedges inside the chicken. Sprinkle the inside of the chicken with 1/3 of the herbs and salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Squeeze the juice from the lemon slices on the chicken and lay the slices on top of it. Dot with butter.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle with the remaining herbs, the paprika, salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Arrange the sliced onion around the chicken.
    9. 9
      Fold up the sides of the foil on the chicken and roll up the foil like a parcel.
    10. 10
      Place in the preheated oven for 2 1/2 hours. Do not open the oven until the time is up.
    11. 11
      Remove the dish from the oven and let sit for about 15-20 minutes before opening the foil.

      Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. You can then use the juice in the pan to make a gravy.

      We found the flavor of this to be too subtle for our tastes, and the texture was more like boiled chicken than baked chicken.

      So tender! I used a fork to 'carve' the chicken. The lemon flavor comes through. I followed the directions exactly as written. Because this chicken is cooked inside of the foil, you won't get a crispy skinned roast chicken. There is plenty of juice to make gravy with.

      This was very good and very moist. I did taste the lemon in the chicken, but next time I may tuck the lemon slices under the skin for even more flavor. Thank you for sharing.
