Garlic and lemon Chicken
Ingredients * 1 (about 1.6kg) whole roasting chicken, neck and giblets discarded * Salt and freshly ground black pepper * 1 orange, quartered * 1 lemon, quartered * 1 head garlic, halved crosswise, plus 3 garlic cloves, chopped * 2 cans chicken broth * 1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed * 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice * 2 tablespoons olive oil * 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves * Kitchen string or butcher twine
DirectionsPosition the rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.Pat the chicken dry and sprinkle the cavity with salt and pepper. Stuff the cavity with the orange, lemon, and garlic halves. Tie the chicken legs together with kitchen string to help hold its shape. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.Place a rack in a large roasting pan. Place the chicken, breast side up, on the rack in the pan. Roast the chicken for 1 hour, basting occasionally and adding some chicken broth to the pan, if necessary, to prevent the pan drippings from burning. Whisk the orange juice, lemon juice, oil, oregano, and chopped garlic in a medium bowl to blend. Brush some of the juice mixture over the chicken, after it has baked 1 hour. Continue roasting the chicken until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the innermost part of the thigh registers 170 degrees F, basting occasionally with the juice mixture and adding broth to the pan, about 45 minutes longer. Transfer the chicken to a latter. Tent with foil while making the sauce (do not clean the pan).Place the same roasting pan over medium-low heat. Whisk in any remaining broth and simmer until the sauce is reduced to 1 cup, stirring often, about 3 minutes. Strain into a 2-cup glass measuring cup and discard the solids. Spoon the fat from the top of the sauce. Serve the chicken with the pan sauce
Directions 1. Preheat the oven to 200C/fan180C. Squeeze the juice from 2 lemons into a small pan and heat with the butter, honey, rosemary, garlic and salt and pepper, until the butter melts and it smells fragrant. 2. Lay the chicken in a roasting tin - don't pile it up or it won't cook so well. Add the potatoes and drizzle with lemon butter to coat evenly. Cut the third lemon into 8 wedges and tuck them in. (Can be made up to 2 hours ahead up to this point and will give the chicken fantastic flavour if you have the time.) 3. Roast for 50 minutes - 1 hour until the chicken is cooked and the potatoes are crisp and golden. Serve with a green salad.
