Amazing Whole Cut Roasted Chicken
whole cut chicken*
freshly squeezed lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
garlic cloves, diced
Preheat oven to 400ºF. In a small bowl stir together the thyme, marjoram, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
Cut any extra fat off the chicken pieces. Leave the skin on so that the chicken roasts with optimal flavor and moisture!
Place chicken pieces in an even layer in a large pan. Drizzle the lemon juice over the chicken. Sprinkle the spice mixture evenly over all the pieces, rubbing it in on both sides.
Bake the seasoned chicken pieces for 30 min at 400ºF. Leave oven closed, reduce temperature to 350ºF and bake for 20 more minutes.
Check chicken to see if it is cooked through and slightly golden. If it needs additional time or you would like it more golden, broil for 5-10 more minutes.
