Lemon & Garlic Roasted Chicken

This roasted garlic and lemon chicken is hands down my favorite recipe! It's so full proof for any cook or any meal. I usually make this dish for my friends during our annual Friendsgiving. Every time I make this chicken is always comes out perfectly, juicy, and so flavorful!
Last weekend I hosted my annual Friendsgiving at my house (this is the 4th year!) and it was a blast!  I love entertaining, hosting and decorating. I had 7 friends attend this year and that was probably all I could fit in my tiny “dining” area. It was really nice to just hang out with all my friends and catch up! Life is so busy so I’m always looking forward to any excuse to see my friends!

Hosting a gathering? Pin it to save!

I made my simply divine roasted lemon & garlic chicken (which was totally inspired/adapted by Ian Garten, my favorite chef!).  This recipe is so simple and quick to prep that you’ll be done in 10 minutes and back to relaxing before your guest comes!

Ingredients
  • 1 (5 to 6 lb) whole chicken
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Italian Seasonings
  • 4 Lemons
  • 4 Garlic (whole)
  • ½ cup Chicken Stock
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degree.
  2. Remove all the parts from the inside and rinse the chicken off. Pat the outside dry with a paper towel. Liberally salt and pepper the inside and both sides of the chicken. Toss Italian Seasoning all over chicken as well.
  3. Cut lemons and garlic in half.
  4. Stuff the chickens cavities with both even parts of lemon and garlic. Place chicken in roasting pan. Tie the legs together with kitchen string and tuck the wing tips under the body of the chicken. Scatter the remaining garlic and lemon around the roasting pan.
  5. Roast the chicken for 1 hour. Bast the chicken stock over the tops and inside of the chicken. Lower the temperature to 400 degrees.
  6. Continue to check the chicken over the next 45-60 minutes, basting each time. You will know it's done when you cut between a leg and thigh and the juices run clear.
  7. Garnish with lemons on your platter and enjoy!
