Having never roasted a whole chicken before I don't have any sort of go to recipe... I just picked the one that looked the best on foodgawker and went for it.
The result: This tasty looking little devil.
The way is quite simple too.
Wash and dry the raw chicken.
Give it a nice rub with a heft amount of salt and pepper (inside and out).
Take 3 small lemons. Roll them and puncture them in no fewer than 20 spots each. Get them in the cavity and seal it up with some toothpicks.
@350 degrees cook for 30 minutes breast down.
Flip it - 30 more minutes.
Crank them temp up to 450 and let it go for 20 more minutes. Check the temperature and cook for longer if needed.
Let it sit for a little bit an dig in. It's fantastic.
