Ingredients[edit | edit source]

1 3-4 pound broiler/fryer chicken
1/4 cup Country Roast Chicken Seasoning
40 cloves garlic, smashed
1 re-usable organic cotton produce bag (optional)
Olive oil
1 large lemon, thinly sliced
1/2 bunch thyme
5 sprigs rosemary
1/2 bunch flat-leaf parsley

Directions[edit | edit source]

  1. Rub the Country Roast Chicken Seasoning under the skin of the chicken. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Tie the chicken's legs together and wing tips under the back with butcher's twine.
  3. Heat garlic in a microwave on low for 6 minutes.
  4. In this step, work quickly. If using a bag, place garlic in and stuff it in the cavity. If not, just stuff it in.
  5. Coat chicken with olive oil. Place herbs in the bottom of a roasting pan and put lemon slices on top. Put chicken breast side up on top and bake in an oven for 45 minutes at 375°F (190°C) . Turn the temperature up to 425°F (220°C) and bake for 45 more minutes or until the internal temperature in both the thigh and breast reaches 165°F (75°C) and the juices run clear. Let rest for 10 minutes and serve.
