  • Ready In

  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grate 1 1/2 teaspoons zest and squeeze 1 tablespoon juice from the lemon.
  2. Stir the lemon zest, lemon juice, soup, rosemary, thyme and garlic in a medium bowl. Reserve 1 cup soup mixture for the gravy. Place the chicken into a shallow roasting pan.
  3. Roast the chicken for 20 minutes. Brush the chicken with 1/4 cup soup mixture.
  4. Roast for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove the chicken to a serving platter and keep warm.
  5. Spoon off any fat from the pan juices. Stir the wine in the roasting pan and heat over medium-high heat to a boil, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in the reserved soup mixture and water and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Serve the gravy with the chicken.

The chicken really came out quite good. I used a little less lemon zest than the recipe called for and it still gave the chicken a really nice flavor. Typically you'd want to put the gravy on s...

I thought it was AMAZINGG but i did change a few things to make it quicker: instead of using a whole chicken i did the uncooked chicken tenders then cooked them around 20 mins. it tasted sooo go...

My husband was drinking the gravy straight from the ladle. I personally thought it was a little "lemony", but he couldn't get enough of it. I will definitely make it again. He insists!

Was really excited to try this, couldn't have been more disappointed. The wine gave it the weirdest taste. Took 2 bites and just couldn't do it. Made sure to read everyone's reviews, good or bad...
