Lizzie's Roasted Chicken

  • SERVINGS: 4
  1. One 3 1/2-pound chicken
  2. Kosher salt
  3. 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  4. 2 bay leaves
  5. 1 small onion, peeled and quartered
  6. 3 garlic cloves
  7. 8 thyme sprigs
  8. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  9. Freshly ground pepper
  1. Rinse the chicken inside and out under cold water and pat it thoroughly dry with paper towels. Season generously with salt. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Let the chicken come to room temperature before cooking.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°. Carefully loosen the breast skin of the chicken and tuck three slices of lemon and a bay leaf under the skin on each breast half. Stuff the onion, garlic, thyme sprigs and the remaining lemon slices into the cavity. Rub the olive oil all over the chicken and season with pepper. Roast for about 1 hour, until the juices run clear when an inner thigh is pierced. Transfer the chicken to a carving board and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut the chicken into 8 pieces and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Creamy, full-bodied California Chardonnay.
