I love to roast chicken whole. It is the epitomy of lazy cooking in my opinion, however, the payoff is amazing! You marinate the chicken, stick it in the oven for an hour, and you’re done. I’ve mastered the art of roast chicken. My roast chicken is famous among my friends and family. Brining is the secret to perfectly roasted chicken, but I’ll save that for a another post. For now I’ll just give you a recipe for perfectly roasted chicken.
Here’s what you need:
1 Whole Organic non-GMO Chicken
4 cloves of garlic, pasted
The juice of 1 lemon
The zest of 1 lemon
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
In a small bowl add the pasted garlic, lemon zest and oil.
Rub the the olive oil mixture all over the Chicken, and season it generously with sea salt and pepper.
Place the chicken in a 450F degree oven and bake for 45 minutes to an hour. Remove once the chicken has cooked through and the skin is crispy and golden brown. Pour the the lemon juice over the chicken, let rest for 10 minutes and serve.
