I have such a hard time with roast chicken. Most recipes call for high starting temp to crisp and then lower oven for cooking. All done in an hour. This method, even though cooking time was longer, produced tender chicken and delicious crispy skin. I didn't have time to brine the chicken first but it still turned out moist and delicious.

This chicken makes my heart feel happy. A juicy tender roasted chicken is one of the world's great foods. I love the lemon and the tea.
Thanks aargersi! Roast chicken is a weekly thing at our house. Now if only the editors can help me reverse the roasting and the brining. I have no idea how it happened...still waiting to hear from them.
