Recipe: Lemon Herb Roasted Whole Chicken
- 1 whole chicken (about 4-5 pounds)
- 2 lemons, halved
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- 1 cup chicken broth
- Fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, and parsley) for garnish
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Rinse the whole free-range chicken inside and out with cold water. Pat it dry with paper towels.
- In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic, chopped rosemary, chopped thyme, extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and black pepper.
- Rub the garlic-herb mixture evenly over the entire chicken, both on the skin and inside the cavity.
- Stuff the chicken cavity with the halved lemons and a few sprigs of fresh herbs.
- Place the seasoned and stuffed chicken in a roasting pan, breast side up.
- Pour the chicken broth into the bottom of the roasting pan.
- Cover the chicken loosely with aluminum foil and roast in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes per pound, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
- Remove the foil during the last 30 minutes of roasting to allow the skin to become golden and crispy.
- Once cooked, remove the roasted free-range whole chicken from the oven and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before carving.
- Garnish with fresh herbs before serving.
