Lazy Sunday Roast Chicken With Lemon And Thyme
In my house, Sunday's are for cooking and baking, and there is nothing better on a cold Sunday evening than a roast chicken. I love roast chicken because of it's ease of preparation. It really couldn't be simpler.
I take an organic chicken and salt it inside and out, return it to its plastic bag and let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours. Next, I stuff the cavity with bunches of thyme and rosemary, a garlic head, and one lemon, quartered. Lastly I melt unsalted butter and brush it all over, finishing it off with a small sprinkling of salt and pepper.
One hour and ten minutes later, my gorgeous chicken comes out of it's 410 degree oven perfectly cooked and juicy. There really is nothing better on a lazy Sunday evening.
