Cooking Process

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Chop rainbow carrots, potatoes, onion, garlic, and fresh herbs.
  3. Place vegetables into a ceramic cooking dish with EVOO, salt + pepper. Set aside while preparing the chicken. 
  4. Prepare the chicken by removing the insides (I ask the butcher to do this), rubbing the outside of the chicken with a whole garlic clove (or 2!) and salt + pepper. (I am generous with the seasoning! I like flavor!)
  5. Stuff the inside of the chicken with 2-3 whole garlic cloves, 1 sliced lemon, onion slices, & fresh herbs. 
  6. Place the chicken over the seasoned vegetables. Add remaining herbs, drizzle with EVOO, salt + pepper, lemon juice.
  7. Pop in the oven and cook for about 75 minutes.
