Roasted Greek Chicken
I came up with this after visit to a Greek Restaurant and having a wonderful meal of Greek Roast Chicken. I wanted to make it at home. This is a pretty close second.
It's a great dinner when you are going to be home all day or if you aren't afraid to leave dinner in oven.
cavender's greek seasoning
Wash the chicken and rinse the cavity. Dry inside and out with paper towel
Mix toegther in a small jar the juice of the lemon (save the lemon) and some evoo. to the consistancy of salad dressing.
peel and cut the onion in half
Put the onion and lemon in the cavity of the chicken and sprinkle the inside of the chicken with the Seasoning Mix. You can use it generously it isn't too salty.
Rub the chicken with the lemon juice and olive oil mixture. The sprinkle generously with the Seasoning Mix. Again, it isn't too salty. Be sure to get the back of the chicken too.
Put in a ziplock bag and refrigerate overnight.
Roast the chicken at 250 degrees for 5 to 6 hours; to an internal temperature of 180 degrees.
Let it rest atleast 15 minutes before carving.
