Lemon Garlic Roasted Chicken

I love making roasted lemon garlic roasted chicken on a brisk fall night.  The juicy chicken, crispy chicken skin, and the smell of roasted chicken with garlic and lemon throughout the house is so nostalgic. 

I first came upon this method of cooking from Susan Rogers Zuni CafĂ©.  I made her recipe numerous times and the chicken would come out juicy and picture perfect, but for me I needed a little more pizazz. 

I modified the recipe to include lemon and garlic.  After salting the chicken and letting it air dry overnight, I would bring the chicken to room temperature and loosely stuff the chicken with garlic and lemons.   Be careful to stuff the garlic and lemons lightly into the chicken which would allow the hot oven air to cook the inside of the chicken. 

Remember to let the chicken rest for about 15 minutes to allow the juices to settle prior to carving.  I serve the lemon garlic roasted chicken with either roasted potatoes or some creamy mash potatoes.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this recipe.
