[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This recipe for roast chicken is juicy and bursting with flavour. The best part is that you can use the carcass to make homemade chicken stock and freeze it. Using ice cube trays is a great way to freeze stock for single portions.

Preheat oven to 400°F

Zest two of the lemons. Strip the leaves off of one of the rosemary sprigs and chop it up finely. In a bowl, combine softened butter, lemon zest, rosemary, and salt and pepper to taste.

Line a baking sheet with heavy duty aluminium foil and lay the patted-dry chicken on the foil, breast side up.

Use your fingers to smear the butter mixture all over the chicken, under the skin, and inside the cavity. Cut the lemons in half and squeeze the juice of one lemon all over the chicken. Place the sixlemon halves (if they’ll fit!) and the three remaining rosemary leaves into the cavity of the bird.

Place the chicken into the oven and roast it for 1 hour, 15 minutes or until done. Skin should be deep golden brown and juices should be sizzling. Serve.
