    I made this using the entire chicken so my family my enjoy it. I combined the seasonings in a separate bowl with a 1 tablespoon of canola oil. Lay the chicken in roasting pan with rack inside it to elevate the chicken. With breast side up separate skin and rub season on chicken. Cover w/lemon. - 1/18/09

    Wasn't a fan - next time I'll do them in the crock pot with some chicken stock so they will be nice and juicy. - 11/10/08

    I had some rosemary, lemon, garlic, and chicken in my kitchen and was wondering how to properly prepare them. This recipe was very simple, and very tasty! I'll be making it again! - 5/31/08
