Lemon Garlic Roasted Chicken Recipe

A few weeks ago I made this Lemon Garlic Roasted Chicken Recipe and ever since I made it, my family has been begging me to make it again. The recipe only requires a few simple ingredients and is super easy to prepare. Matter of fact, prep time is less than 5 minutes!

Lemon Garlic Roasted Chicken Recipe

1 Whole Chicken
3 Lemons
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
Ground Black Pepper
1 teaspoon Poultry Seasoning
1 tablespoon Parsley
1 teaspoon Rosemary
1/4 cup Chicken Broth

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut lemons in half and juice them. Reserve the juice into a measuring cup and set aside. Cut the remaining lemon rinds into halves or quarters, depending on their size; set aside. Mix the lemon juice, chicken broth, 1 minced clove of garlic, salt, ground black pepper, parsley and rosemary together in the measuring cup; set aside.

Place the second minced clove of garlic and the lemon rinds into the cavity of the chicken. Season the outside of the chicken with just a tad of salt and ground black pepper. Pour a little bit of the lemon juice mixture over the top of the chicken. You will want to reserve most of this liquid.

Put the chicken into the oven and bake for approximately 90 minutes or until the pop-up timer states it is done. About every 30 minutes during the baking process baste the chicken with the lemon juice & chicken broth mixture. During the last 10 minutes of the baking process remove the cover from the roasting pan so that the chicken gets a nice brown color. Remove from oven and serve.

I am always looking for more ways to roast chicken. This recipe is very Similar to one I make which has more garli and le lemon juice. I shall have to try your version to see which I prefer or perhaps I shall want to make the chicken both ways.
