  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Squeeze 3 tablespoons juice from lemons; reserve squeezed lemon halves. Combine the lemon juice, parsley, mustard, garlic, oil, rosemary, pepper, and salt in a small bowl; blend well.
  3. Toss the potatoes with 2 tablespoons of the parsley mixture in a large bowl. Reserve. Gently slide fingers between the skin and meat of the chicken to loosen skin. Spoon parsley mixture between skin and meat. Secure breast skin with toothpicks, if necessary. Place lemon halves in the cavity of chicken. Place chicken on a rack in a roasting pan.
  4. Bake chicken in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Arrange potatoes around the chicken; bake until chicken juices run clear, about 1 additional hour. Allow chicken to rest for 10 minutes before serving.

Good flavor from the herb mix. The top of the chicken was cooked at the end of cooking time but not the bottom nor the potatoes. I ended up having to cook them separately to get them both done. ...

I made it without the potatoes and perhaps that's why it was a little dry. Very tasty and easy to make.

This was very tasty. Next time I would add a bit more salt, but overall it was delicious just as the recipes directs.

So delicious & moist...my entire family loved it!

Meh. I was unimpressed with this. The chicken was nice and tender, but I thought the flavors were pretty uninspired. Just so-so...and I'll likely not make it again.

I made this for dinner last night - and it was pretty good - but nothing spectacular. It's relatively impressive for a beginner, I may try it again, but will add a bit more Dijon.
