  • Summary

    After making this, I want to marry myself, it tastes SO good! LOL This is quite simple, juicy and VERY flavorful, with a crispy skin. I want the onions to carmelize, so I put the 1/2 cup chicken stock and the 1/2 cup white wine into the roasting pan in the beginning. (add more if needed) Sometimes I add fresh thyme or other herbs into the lemon-onion mixture. If you don't have twine, the chicken will still be fine, but tuck the wings under. I have added either small Red or Yukon potatoes to the pan with great results, the potatoes soak up the drippings and are very yummy. This is adapted from Food Network, Ina ROCKS!
