The BEST DAMN Lemon Roast Chicken recipe I've ever seen...w/ photygraph..

Well Sir....Sue Gertson down Texas way has just sent me what I consider t'be the best damn Lemon Roast of Chicken recipe' I've ever seen....yupper...I cain't say I've ever seen a Roasted Chicken come out lookin as suculent and mouth waterin as this the photygraph will show...

ROASTED CHICKEN BREAST RECIPE too good not to pass on.
I thought I would share it with others who are forced into the kitchen
several times a week. Anyway, here it is:


1 whole chicken

1 large lemon, cut into halves
sprig of rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer
Heat oven to 350 degrees

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!
