Sometimes simplicity produces the best flavor. The preparation time does not include the 1 hour marinade time. Marinade in the fridge.
- Marinate the chicken in the oil, lemon juice & oregano for an hour.
- Rub some of the marinade inside the bird.
- Bake at 375 for 1 hour or until done.
Bergy, you're right, this is simplicity at it's best. Instead of roasting in the oven, I cooked this in my Showtime Rotisserie for an hour..."set it and forget it." Your suggestion to rub the cavity of the chicken with the marinade I believe really helped to infuse the flavors of the lemon and thyme into the bird. Next time I try this, and there will definately be a next time, I'll use my flavor injector needle to really get the marinade into the meat! You have a winner here!
Five out of Five people liked this recipe. I had to double the recipe because I roasted a six pound chicken. I also used my Showtime Rotisserie and injected the marinate right into the chicken. I served it with Spicy Potato Bumps posted by Dorothy Parks. Next time I will try your stuffing recipe.
Mmmmmm! this was fantastic! So easy! Hubby loved it too! I made it just as posted.
