Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken

Monday, March 26, 2012

We made this out of the SP cookbook yesterday! OMG it was so good! So Moist! We loved it!

It was funny since this was the first time I ever made a whole chicken. My mom walked in with the kids as I was getting ready to stick the lemons in the bird. She asked, did you take out the neck and stuff. I said what stuff?? She said there might be a bag of stuff in there. And then she laughed at me. Well I shoved my hand in there and felt around and there wasn't any bag. But I did feel the bones, which was weird (never made a whole turkey either) so it kinda weirded me out. But I did good and it turned out perfect.

It was really easy too. Will DEFINITELY make again!

    I have a whole chicken in the freezer for this recipe, just haven't made it yet. I will have to in the next couple of weeks. I thought it was one everyone would eat without too much whining :-)

    I made that recipe and really loved it too. Now looking for plant-based recipes as we're cutting out animal products. There are great recipes in the Spark cookbook!

    Yum!! First time my dd made a turkey with me was when she was 3 and wanted to help with Thanksgiving dinner...1st time she realized that the Turkey we eat is the same one she saw at the zoo and she cried and told everyone all day how sad it was that the Turkey use to be alive...she still eats turkey but that was a hard day! She is now 18 and heading to college next year...time flies...thanks for your blog and making me remember...Smiles Barb
