Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Zest one of the lemons and put aside
  • Place the three lemons in a pan of boiling water and leave for one minute
  • Cut the zested lemon and squeeze out as much juice as possible
  • Puncture the other two lemons and place in the clean cavity of the bird
  • Melt the butter slowly just until soft
  • Add the salt, paprika, rosemary and sage
  • Add the heated stock
  • Place the butter mixture into a squirt bottle
  • Gently lift the skin of the chicken
  • Squirt the butter mixture under the skin
  • Salt and Pepper the outside
  • Bake for approx. 2 hours-depending on the size of the bird
  • Sometimes I place a whole onion in the cavity
  • ***Please temp the meat for safety reasons. Take out just before 180* or until the pulls away from the bird freely.
  • I am serving this tonight with Chefmeow's Broccoli Cream Cheese Bake.
  • YUM

    I made this dish with chefmeow's Broccoli Cream Cheese Bake and with a couple of changes it was wonderful. It is still steaming hot on my counter, just waiting for the Lemon Chicken to come out.
