  • SERVINGS: 8
  1. Two 3 1/2-pound chickens
  2. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  3. 1 lemon, halved
  4. 1 orange, halved
  5. 8 garlic cloves
  6. 8 rosemary sprigs

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. Season the chickens all over with salt and pepper. Stuff each chicken with a lemon and orange half, 2 garlic cloves and 2 sprigs each of rosemary and thyme.
