Roast Lemon Chicken
Pair with a cool Pinot Grigio and green beans for a great spring meal."Very moist easy recipe. We really enjoy the garlic flavor, so I added a garlic bulb to the cavity and topped with a little lemon-pepper seasoning. Still had the feeling it was missing something though. I was thinking rosemary, but after reading another comment that someone added fresh thyme, I think that may be a good addition as well. Definitely be preparing this one again though. ;) " - DrgnHrt

Roast Lemon Chicken Preparation
Rinse chicken; pat dry.
In a heavy iron frying pan, heat oil and butter over medium heat until foamy. Add garlic, lemon juice, a 1x2 inch slice of lemon peel, and nutmeg. Add chicken to pan, breast-side up, and brush lavishly with basting mixture. Put in 350 degree oven to bake. As soon as you put chicken in oven, put potatoes into lightly salted water; parboil for 10 minutes.
Drain, dip cut sides in chicken's pan juices, then set them around the chicken. Baste chicken again, return pan to oven, and bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Baste both chicken and potatoes again at least once while baking.
Excellent, relatively easy way to roast chicken. Be careful to thoroughly dry the chicken before the intial saute part; if the chicken is wet at all it will spatter a lot.
