In the interest of time and calories , I omitted the stuffing and put a whole lemon, cut in half in the chicken cavity. It was one of the best chicken recipes I have ever made. I will certainly make it again.

This is a great way to roast a chicken. I prefer to roast some potatoes in the pan with the bird rather than use a bread stuffing inside of it (actually I'd like BOTH, but I have to cut the calories and carbs somewhere!). I usually put 2 small lemons and a bay leaf in the cavity.

I thought this recipe was delicious. I can't believe more people haven't tried it. I've made it several times and I use a bigger chicken and the family can't get enough! I even make a gravy with the drippings and it is wonderful with a hint of lemon flavor.
