1 whole chicken (weight is dependent on how many servings
are required) 1 large lemon, cut in half
sprig of rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer
Heat oven to 350 degrees
DIRECTIONS: Rub butter or oil over the skin of the chicken until it is
completely coated. Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the
breast meat; slide lemon halves under the skin with the peel side up.
This way the juice from the lemon will coat the breast.
Season skin of chicken to your preference; place sprig of rosemary into the chicken.
Cover and place in oven for 30-45 minutes. Remove cover and continue to
roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes, depending on
size of the bird.
If you've followed these steps correctly, your chicken should look like
the one in the picture. Bon Appetit!
