Roasted Chicken stuffed with Lemon

Vanessa "Nikita" Milare


We have made this before. It is a family favorite. We have even done this with trukey. It always comes out juicy, moist & with a perfectly crispy skin. Only different this time is we made it in our new Toaster Oven. It still came out good.
