Steps (4)

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 425°F and place a cooking rack into a roasting pan.

  2. 2

    Season the cavity of the chicken well with salt and pepper, and stuff with the garlic, apple and lemon halves. Brush the outside of the chicken with the butter and sprinkle with the seasoning mix.

  3. 3

    Tie the legs together with kitchen string and tuck the wing tips under the body of the chicken. Place on the rack.

  4. 4

    Roast the chicken for 1½ hours, or until the juices run clear when you cut between a leg and thigh. Remove the chicken and let rest for about 10–15 minutes before carving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great roast chicken I had a coupon for the seasoning and am challenged for ways to use it. This was good, especially the skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy chicken Very tasty, but I had to only use 1/2 an apple and half an onion, chicken cavity to small. I may have read recipe wrong. But it tastes good and is very easy to make.
