Here is a great way to add flavor to roasted chicken. Cut a lemon in half and place one half with the cut side forward toward the neck in the cavity of the chicken after you have salted and peppered the cavity. Take 5 -8 cloves of smashed garlic and place them around the cavity and then place the other half of the lemon with cut surface facing out in the cavity. For best results truss the chicken - that heps the meat cook more evenly. Rub the outside of the chicken with olive oil and then add your seasonings. I use lemon pepper and kosher salt, or Davis Dust, this will help your chicken be moist and flavorful.
