Lemon Pepper Roasted Chicken

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Very good!

I love eating rotisserie chicken. So, why not cook it at home.  There are dozens of flavors out there. I go to the spices grocery isle, I pick out anything that sounds good (This time it’s Webber’s Lemon pepper marinade mix that is made for salmon or fish) and I tweak it. You know what also goes well with lemon and pepper? Chicken, stir fry veggies, and baked potatoes also goes well with lemon and pepper. Every once in a while, we bake salmon with the Lemon pepper marinade mix, but once the salmon is gone, there is still plenty of seasoning left, try stir-frying it with chicken and veggies plus a little bit of water+cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Viola! Another instant recipe.

Ingredients: 1-2 packets of Webber Just add juice Lemon pepper marinade mix(this depends on the size of your chicken), Small to medium whole chicken

Buy a whole chicken or quail anything poultry that is relatively small in size(It’s way better when it’s extra small). Wash it thoroughly and pat it dry with a paper towel. Get the marinade mix and add the juice (make it moist enough so it sticks on to the chicken). Rub the marinade mix generously into the chicken, under and over the skin. Cover with a foil for the first 20 minutes. Bake chicken at 375°F. Baste the chicken every once in a while…I can’t tell you how long because it depends on the size of your chicken. You will have to check with your handy dandy thermometer. To get it looking crispy and finger lickin’ good, turn the oven into Broil before serving. Broil it until the skin is golden brown crispy about 1-4 minutes(don’t forget to turn it over). I use the USDA guideline when it comes to cooking meat.
