How to Make Whole Roast Chicken with Lemon & Herbs

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 15 steps you must follow to make Whole Roast Chicken with Lemon & Herbs in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • 1 or 2 days in advance, sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper on the outside & inside (you can add some herbs here too). Alternatively, use shio-koji instead (which is what the photo shows), rubbing the chicken with a few tablespoons of it. (this tenderizes the meat and keeps it moister during baking).
  • Step 2
  • I keep the chicken in a large plastic bag in the refrigerator until it's baking day.
  • Step 3
  • Pull the chicken out of the refrigerator 1 hour before baking. If it's cold when you put it in the oven, it won't bake evenly. If you used shio-koji, wipe off any of the excess shio-koji on the skin.
  • Step 4
  • Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C.
  • Step 5
  • Fill the cavity of the chicken with plenty of herbs and slices of lemon. Tuck sprigs of rosemary and thyme between the wings and legs.
  • Step 6
  • Tuck slices of garlic in various places under the skin.
  • Step 7
  • Tye the drumsticks together with some cooking string. If the tail is attached, tuck the tail up between the legs.
  • Step 8
  • Fold the wing tips back and under the front of the chicken to prevent the tips from burning and to make the appearance nicer.
  • Step 9
  • Put in a baking tray, along with a couple potatoes and a carrot if you like. Sprinkle chicken with pepper and optionally place a couple lemon slices on top.
  • Step 10
  • Place chicken in a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes (25 min. for larger size) breast-side up. Then baste the breast side with the juices that have dripped out to the bottom of the pan/dish.
  • Step 11
  • Flip the chicken so it's breast-side down and bake for another 20 minutes (25 min. for the larger size). Flipping it helps it bake evenly and distributes the juices and fat (tip from Alice Waters ;)
  • Step 12
  • Flip the chicken again so the breast-side is up. Bake for another 10-20 minutes (25-35 min. for larger chicken) or until the chicken is finished.
  • Step 13
  • To check if the chicken is done, slice into the thighs near the drumstick and thigh joint. The meat should be no longer red, the juices clear and should be hot. If it's not done yet, bake for another few minutes.
  • Step 14
  • When, finished, let the chicken rest for 15 minutes before cutting into it! Arrange on a large dish with any roasted veggies you put in with the chicken.
  • Step 15
  • Carve it up when you're read to eat!
