Every once in a while, a recipe comes along that feels like a warm hug on a chilly evening, and this Lemon-Herb Roasted Chicken is just that. It’s a perfect blend of tangy lemon, aromatic herbs, and succulent chicken that fills the kitchen with a comforting aroma and the dining room with smiles. Simple enough for a weeknight yet elegant enough for entertaining, this dish is a must-try for any home cook!


  • 1 whole chicken (about 45 pounds)
  • 2 lemons, halved
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh thyme, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 2 cups of low-sodium chicken broth


  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 400°F (200°C), allowing it to heat up while you prepare the chicken.
  2. Prepare the Marinade: In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, lemon juice from one lemon, garlic, rosemary, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Ready the Chicken: Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Rub the marinade all over the chicken, inside and out, ensuring it’s well-coated.
  4. Stuff the Chicken: Stuff the cavity of the chicken with the remaining lemon halves and the quartered onion.
  5. Roast: Place the chicken in a roasting pan. Pour the chicken broth into the pan (this helps keep the chicken moist). Roast for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until the juices run clear and a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh reads 165°F (75°C).
  6. Rest: Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before carving. This helps retain its juices, making it even more succulent.


  • Herb Variations: Feel free to experiment with other herbs like sage or marjoram for a different twist.
  • Citrus Twist: Adding orange segments to the cavity can introduce a sweeter, nuanced flavor.
  • Basting: Baste the chicken occasionally with the pan juices for extra flavor and moisture.
