The ultimate one dish meal! Tender, crispy chicken roasted with lemony herbed vegetables! Simple and perfect for Sunday dinner or busy weeknights!

What You'll Need
  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1/2 pound baby carrots
  • 4 sprigs celery
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 8 yellow potatoes
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons dried rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees with oven rack at lowest level. Remove giblets from chicken and discard.   Rinse chicken inside and out.  Pat dry with paper towels. Place chicken in large roasting pan, 12″ x 18″. In a large mixing bowl,  whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, rosemary, oregano, garlic powder and black pepper.  Set aside. Rinse baby carrots. Wash celery and cut into 2 inch chunks.  Wash yellow potatoes and slice in half lengthwise  (No need to peel!  Love those yellow spuds!)  Clean onion and cut into 1″ chunks.   Place veggies in lemon marinade and toss to coat. Arrange veggies around the chicken.  Baste chicken with remaining marinade. Bake at 375 for 90 minutes, turning veggies halfway through.  Test chicken with meat thermometer at thickest part.  Temperature should be 180 degrees for well done. Serve with tossed green salad. Serves 4

Oh my goodness! This was such a success. The chicken was perfectly done at exactly 90 min. and the veggies were so tasty because of the marinade. And, added bonus... the whole house filled with amazing aromas of herbs and roast chicken. Thanks.
