  • 3 lb to 4 roaster chicken

    Wash the chicken and cavity with cool water and pat dry. Set on a rack on top of a roasting pan. Drizzle the chicken with olive oil all over and then season with garlic powder, salt and pepper — don’t forget to season in the cavity too.

    Cut the lemon into four wedges and stuff into the cavity – peel and all. Stick the sprigs of rosemary in the cavity as well.
