Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken

In this video, you’ll see how to make an Italian-style roast chicken. A whole chicken is simply rubbed with herbs, drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice, and roasted until juicy, tender, and beautifully golden brown. It’s the perfect Sunday dinner. And so easy! Watch the video, then get barbzal’s 5-star recipe for Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken. Try it with roasted new potatoes and a simple green vegetable. An Italian white wine, like a pinot grigio, would be wonderful with this meal.

In the same way you put the herbs and spices under the skin for flavor, you can add butter under there, too. It will sorta self-baste for awhile, and the white parts will be so juicy! I have done my Thanksgiving turkeys this way for years, and they are always so moist. I still have to baste them, but turning them breast-side down to cook reduces the basting time as well.

This is my go-to recipe! I put the chicken in a larger pan and filled the pan with vegetables: potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, and especially, a lot of bell peppers! Add more lemon/oil and baste to get the wonderful juices. It is a winner!
