    Wash and pat dry chicken
  2. Cut lemon in half, salt and pepper chicken cavity. Place half of lemon within cavity along with a couple of sprigs of rosemary and thyme. Cut a clove of garlic in half and place within cavity of chicken. Fold wings under chicken and tie legs with bakers twine to close cavity of chicken.
  3. Slice second half of lemon of slices and place underneath skin of chicken along the breast. Slice second clove of garlic thinly and place it also underneath skin of chicken breast along with lemon.

This will help to keep the meat tender.
