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.
Def deserves 5 stars. I wish I could get the flavor to permeate throughout the chicken more (any hints?) but this chicken was sooo juicy and had a fabulous presentation! THANKS!!
OH MY...what can I say. This was so good. I made this for my BF's birthday dinner. His choice. It is so juicy, lemony and seasoned just right. Fall apart tender!! Will be making this often. Thanks so much.
awesome!! I have to agree with one of the reviewer's, this was one of the moistest chicken's we have ever eaten. The gravy was unbelievable.. Thank you CQ for a great chicken recipe that everyone enjoyed and will be made again.. :)
Thank you for sharing this recipe it was a real hit at my family dinner this evening. It is soooo juicy and will be a staple dinner for us from now on.
I love fool-proof recipes--this one is tops. Can't get much easier, end results are yummy and clean-up is a breeze. The only change--using Emeril's Original Essence seasoning instead. The ingredients are almost the same as what this recipe calls for, in case you have it on hand too. Thanks, Culinaryqueen!
Succulent is right! This chicken is the moistest and soooo delicious. I made as posted except to leave off the rosemary (personal preference). It is very easy to put to together and stick in the oven and forget. The meat was so juicy and there were plenty of juices for gravy. Thanks so much for posting this wonderful recipe!!
Really delicious. I didn't even bother with making gravy - the meat was so moist and flavorful - it stood on its' own. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
