Roast Chicken with Two Lemons

3 to 4 lb chicken
Salt and ground pepper
2 smallish, thin skinned lemons, washed well and dried
2 to 3 cloves garlic

Preheat oven to 350. Thoroughly wash the chicken. Let the bird
stand on a slightly tilted plate for about 10 minutes so that all
the water drains out. Dry all over.

Season the chicken inside and out with salt and pepper; rub in the

Set the lemons on a counter and roll them back and forth, pressing
with your palm. Puncture each lemons in at least 20 places.

Place both lemons and garlic cloves in the cavity. Seal the opening
with toothpicks; close well, but don't make an airtight job of it
because the chicken may burst. Run kitchen string from one leg to
the other and tie it at the knuckle ends; the string serves only
to keep the thighs from spreading apart and splitting the skin.

Set the chicken breast down in a roasting pan. Place it in the
upper third of the oven and roast for 30 minutes. Carefully turn
the chicken over onto its back and cook for another 30 to 35 minutes.

Turn the oven up to 400 F and cook for additional 20 minutes.
(Calculate between 20 and 25 minutes total cooking time per pound.)

Spoon the juices over the chicken and serve. A perfect roast
