Lemon Rosemary Chicken

(1 Votes)
1 Hr 55 Min

Lots of colorful veggies, lots of lemon, and lots of lip-smacking flavor gives us a chicken dinner recipe we know you're gonna love. Our Lemon Rosemary Chicken has a light touch but is packed with flavor for a dinner recipe that's absolutely perfect to cook up during spring or summer. You can even grab a few of the veggies from your garden to truly make this a homemade meal.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 (6-1/2- to 7-pound) roasting chicken
  • 3 medium-sized yellow squash, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 3 medium-sized carrots, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 2 medium-sized zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 10 small red potatoes, cut into quarters
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the oil, lemon juice, rosemary, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; mix well.

  3. Place the chicken on a rack in a large roasting pan. Rub half of the seasoning mixture evenly over the whole chicken, including the cavity.

  4. Place the vegetables and potatoes in the bowl with the remaining seasoning mixture and toss to coat well. Place the vegetables around the chicken in the roasting pan. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 11/2 hours, basting the chicken and vegetables occasionally. Remove the aluminum foil and bake for 25 to 30 more minutes, until no pink remains in the chicken, the juices run clear, and the skin is golden brown.

If your chicken is much larger or smaller than 6-1/2 to 7 pounds, you'll have to adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Sounds yummy, though I have not tried it - I will try it soon and take to my church's WMU meeting.

Great recipe. But ................. that's easily 6-8 servings in our household. I will give it a try.

This sounds REALLY good. The only thing I would change:add lemon Zest, and use Fresh rosemary cut up finely,OR, dried rosemary AND few sprigs of fresh for extra flavor. Going to try this tonite,with my garden veggies. Thanks!
