Day 3 ~ bawk bawk chicken

Lemon-Rosemary Chicken

Whole Chicken
2-3 springs of fresh rosemary
1 lemon, cut in slices
2-3 T. bacon grease
1 onion

Slide hand between skin and meat to make a "pocket" to stuff with lemon slices and rosemary sprigs. Stuff the onion into the chicken.

Spread bacon grease on the chicken. Cover and bake at 350 degrees. Bake for one hour, remove cover and bake for another 30 minutes. Length of cook time will vary depending on the size of your bird. I always check with a meat thermometer to see that the internal temperature of the chicken is at least 165 degrees. 

Easy and delicious.

  1. Be still my heart - BACON GREASE! I keep a jar in my fridge. Nothing better ...

  2. In my best Homer Simpson voice, "MMmmm..bacon." (blame my husband for the Simpson reference)
