Roasted Rosemary Chicken

  • Servings: 4
  • Prep time: ~ 30 minutes, 8 hours to marinade
  • Cook time: ~ 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 2 heads garlic, minced (½ cup)
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (6 lemons)
  • 2/3 cup fresh rosemary sprigs, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1½ teaspoons freshly ground pepper
  • 2 cups olive oil
  • 3 (2½ to 3-pound) broiler-fryers, cut up
  • 3 lemons, sliced
  • Garnish: fresh rosemary sprigs

Combine first 5 ingredients, stirring until blended; gradually add oil, stirring with a wire whisk. Pour mixture evenly into three large heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bags; add chicken pieces and lemon slices. Seal bags and marinate in refrigerator at least 8 hours, turning bags occasionally. Grease two roasting pans. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade. Arrange chicken in pans; drizzle with marinade and top with lemon slices. Bake, uncovered, at 425 degrees for 1 hour or until done, basting with pan juices every 20 minutes. Garnish, if desired. Yield: 12 servings.
