directions

  • Rinse chicken, pat dry. Place chicken breast up in foil-lined shallow roasting pan. In mortar, place garlic, salt, oregano and black pepper, mash them well together. Mix garlic mixture with butter and lemon juice. With your fingers, carefully separate skin from breast, massage 1/2 of mixture gently between breast and skin, then spread the remaining mixture evenly over the whole chicken. Tuck wings under and tie legs together. The chicken will taste better if marinated overnight.
  • Place pan in center of rack and cook for 55 minutes at 350° F, basting occasionally. Cook uncovered at 400° F for 5-7 minutes.

    Cook the chicken at 375 instead of 350 and brown the chicken on both sides for about 7 minutes before putting it in the oven. Don't uncover the chicken, leave it covered and the temperature at 375.

    I grilled it , spooning the leftover marinade over it as it cooked, on indirect heat. I grilled a half of a chicken, and it came out so tender and juicy and the flavor was so good! I served it with Spanish Rice on the side and it was enjoyed!

    Great taste. After squeezing out the lemon juice I stuffed the rinds inside of the chicken. The chicken was moist and I really liked the flavor...Made for 1-2-3 Tag.

    This chicken was really tender and tasty. I felt like I was in the tropics. I used chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken. This will be made again. Made for Newest Zaar.

<p>I am a stay at home mom of two children, although, both now are in college. I am a retired Occupational Therapist. I received my degree from the Ohio State University and am a huge fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes. <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=BRITTANY08XMAS.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/BRITTANY08XMAS.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=DEREK08XMAS.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/DEREK08XMAS.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><br /><br />I have so many cook books that it is hard to pick one as my favorite, but would say I have used the Betty Crocker Cookbook the most since getting married for basic recipes. <br />I love to cook and try new recipes, but prefer simple and quick recipes. I don't like to cook things that require going to specialized grocery stores. I subscribe to several cooking magazines, that usually, require everyday on-hand ingredients. <br /><br />I am not very fond of most seafood, but do enjoy lobster, grilled shrimp and chilean sea bass. I won't cook anything with rosemary or curry, as I really don't like either herbs' flavor. And now from trying recipes, I found that I don't like dijon mustard, but love vinegar and mustard, not sure why I don't like the taste of dijon mustard.</p> <p><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><br /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/ZWT3-Participation.gif border=0 alt=Photo /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/RecipeSwap2.JPG alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/CLC1.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Derfcookathon.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/Other/tagforpage1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view?t=gumnuts.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/gumnuts.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Diner.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG alt=/ /> <br /><br /><br />Adopted banner: <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/TasteofYellowSTICKER.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/ZWT4/gastronomic%20gauchos/GGneon-logo.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BBQlSTKR.jpg alt=/ /> <img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/ZaarStar-AMBanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/CROCKPOTSTKR.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i25/bayhill/footballpool-1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t237/akplongmeadow/AdoptATag2-2-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/BreakfastanytimeSTCK.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/totmtaggame-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://easyhitcounters.com/stats.php?site=diner524 target=_top><img src=http://beta.easyhitcounters.com/counter/index.php?u=diner524&amp;s=blgrv border=0 alt=Website hspace=4 vspace=2 align=middle /></a> <br /><a href=http://easyhitcounters.com/ target=_top>Free Counter</a> <br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=lazymecookathon.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/lazymecookathon.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/AMPageBanner.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/captain.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view&curren;t=Samsbutton.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/Samsbutton.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a></p>
