A whole lot of chicken and garlic

Finally I get to make my roast chicken!!! And wow, this was quite the chicken.  It was huge.  I’m just wondering what this organic chicken ate, she was huge! I even had to add another 15 minutes to the cooking.  We had leftovers, which is rare for us after a roasted chicken.  I used the leftovers for a delicious soup.

Whole chicken

olive oil just to cover the chicken, use a spray bottle if possible.  The best I’ve found is the Misto spray bottle where you add your own olive oil

2 lemons

4 cloves of garlic

dried oregano, thyme and sage, use fresh if possible

fresh rosemary sprig

Chop up all the herbs together, minus the Rosemary.  You will put the rosemary in the salted cavity along with the lemon slices.  Slice garlic and try and put thin pieces under the skin.  Sprinkle chopped herbs on the chicken.  Squeeze lemon juice into the cavity and put the remainder of used lemons in the cavity as well.  Tie the legs together with some cooking twine and put it in the oven at 350 for about 35 minutes.  Turn oven up to 450 for the last 10 mins and baste the chicken.  I served this with various veggies:  Brussel sprouts and  cauliflower.  Again, a successful dinner still following the Dukan plan.  I’ve lost weight!
