Everyone – whether they claim to be a cook or not – should know how to roast a chicken. It’s a basic life skill akin to changing a flat tire or sewing a button. Actually, I don’t know how to do either of those things. But did I mention that I can cook a chicken? A properly cooked chicken produces a result that’s good enough for a dinner party. I still believe the tastiest roast chicken in the world is Judy Rodger’s recipe, but it requires a bit of premeditation and advance planning that even I cannot muster most of the time. This recipe, a combination of many others I’ve tried, is a good second choice when in a pinch.

My husband said that this was the best roasted chicken he’s ever had! It was so easy, too. I think the lemons are the secret. The fact that my bird was fresh helped too, I’m sure. Very juicy. Great recipe.
