A truly wonderful roast chicken is a marvellous thing. This roast chicken with lemon is sure to impress.
An oven proof skillet that just fits the chicken works well for this recipe. When you pull the chicken out of the oven put a cloth on the handle of the pan to remind you it's been in an oven for an hour. If you don't, you will grab it and burn yourself. Everybody does it once - let's not make this "that time". It really, really hurts.
