Rinse and pat chicken thoroughly dry with paper towels. Mix butter, garlic season, black pepper, thyme, parsley, and rosemary in a bowl and rub the outside of the chicken thoroughly with the margarine mixture. Place any remaining butter mixture into the cavity of the chicken. Place chicken into a glass baking dish. Place the halved lemon in the cavity and sprinkle the zest over the top.
Bake chicken in the preheated oven until browned and the juices run clear, about 2 hours. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh, not touching bone, should read at least 160 degrees F.
Serve with Green Beans, Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes and Dinner Rolls.
We are delicious, juicy old crones who have earned their stripes. We are friends over time and space who decided to give back all the delicious information that at the Universe has given us. Some the wisdom of the ages and some from our stupid foibles. The purpose of our site is to share time wizened stories, recipes (some healthy; some not so much), holistic care and supplements from nature's storehouse, and humor...always humor. We want you to laugh with us, share with us, and enjoy the journey with us, whatever it may bring. Namaste
