This is one of my favorite things to make since there are so many possibile uses from a sandwich, to a salad, to soups, and even pot pies – just to name a few.
5 Pound Chicken
1 Lemon or Orange
2 tablespoons of butter
Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven at 450 degrees

To prepare chicken cut up lemon and place inside the chicken as well as a few sprigs of thyme. Basted the chicken with butter, some thyme and salt and pepper. Place chicken in oven for 30 minutes at 450 and then take out for 30 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 350 and bake for another 40 minutes.
Now ready to eat how every you desire.

  1. seriously, one of my favorite meals and this doesn’t look that difficult!

  2. Hi Patty, this sounds so good- and so simple- I’m going to try it! Thanks

  3. Dude, even I didn’t screw this up and I can barely make mac and cheese. My girlfriend was really impressed. Just remember to take out the stuff inside the chicken before you put in the lemons. I wasnt really sure what to do with it so I had to call my mom but luckily she answered so disaster was averted

  4. Dear Patty, I’ve always been intimidated by the idea of roasting a whole chicken. You make it sound so easy. It’s probably way cheaper than the frozen lasagnes I’ve been eating as a default. I will definitely give this recipe a try.

  5. This is incredibly easy! Before finding this recipe, roasting chicken seemed like a daunting task. My husband and I have now made it three times in a month, including Easter dinner. Thank you!!
