    Roasted Chicken With Lemon

    While usually I prefer to cook most of my meats on a smoker or bbq, sometimes you gotta do an easy cook in the oven.  And the oven certainly has it’s benefits – it’s easy to keep temperature and avoid flare ups and you don’t have to leave your kitchen!  The results are a super juicy, tasty roasted chicken with lemon.

    This is a real easy recipe for flavorful, extremely juicy chicken.  Total time is about 2 1/2 hours.  We start off by making a flavored butter rub which not only helps crisp up the skin of the chicken but also gives flavor to the meat and vegetables.
