Lemon Roasted Chicken

"This is a very simple roasted chicken dish. Roast chicken is always a family favourite. Contains no flours so it is gluten free. The lemon flavour infuses as the chicken roasts and keeps the chicken beautifully moist. Can use 1 large chicken, as suggested, or use 2 smaller chickens. Photo of two smaller chickens totalling just over 2 kilos (1 lemon to stuff each chicken). Adjust cooking time if using different sized chickens"

directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Place the lemon halves into the chicken cavity and secure the legs with kitchen string.
  • Brush the chicken with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Place on a wire rack in a roasting dish and cook for 65 minutes or until cooked thru and golden skinned. Stand 10 minutes after removing from the oven before serving.
  • The lemon juice may run from the chicken- so either remove the lemons first or use a carving dish with a lip to catch the juice.

    We enjoyed this very much. I did add some Lawry's Seasoning Salt. It was moist and delicious! Thanks for posting, Jubes. Made for ZWt 6.

    This is very tasty! I made as directed except that I BBQ'd this on the rotisserie. I really liked the simplicity and moistness of this. I had this with mixed veggies and Recipe #263392. Very very good! Made for the No-Nonsense Nibblers for ZWT6. Thanks ***Jubes***! :)
