2 medium lemons halved
2 tablespoons butter melted
1 tablespoon garlic minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 pounds chicken whole

Preparation / Directions:

Heat oven to 375øF. Squeeze 1 lemon to yield 1/4 cup juice; reserve remaining 2 lemon halves. In small bowl, combine lemon juice and all remaining ingredients except chicken; mix well. Rinse chicken inside and out with cold water; drain. Pat dry with paper towels. Brush lemon mixture over chicken skin and inside cavity. Place chicken, breast side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Place reserved lemon halves inside chicken cavity. Bake at 375øF. for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours. Chicken is done when drumstick moves easily up and down and twists in socket, and when chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
