Why I Love This Recipe

The easiest dinner ever !!! Also, it makes the house smell yummy all afternoon. My favorite thing to cook on a cold rainy Sunday . . .

Ingredients You'll Need

1 5 to 7 lb chicken
3-4 small lemons
1 Tbsp salt
1 tsp paprika
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 cups of water


Prehet the oven to 300 degrees

Remove the giblets and excess fat from the chicken cavity..

Rinse the chicken, inside and out, in cold water and dry it thoroughly with paper towels.

Roll the lemons on a countertop to soften them.

Pierce the lemons with a fork or toothpick 10-20 times per lemon.

In a small bowl, use a spoon to mix together the salt, paprika and garlic.

Add some olive oil to make a paste.

Rub half the paste inside the chicken cavity.

Then shove in as many of the lemons as will fit.

Rub the rest of the paste all over the outside of the chicken.

Place the chicken on top of a greased broiler pan.

Pour the water in the bottom of the pan

Bake the chicken for 45 to 60 minutes per pound.

Add baking potatoes after 2 hours.

As the water in the pan evaporates, add more.

Take the lemons out before you bring the chicken to the table

Serve the chicken with pan juices and twice baked potatoes.
