Nothing's more versatile than a flavorful bird at your fingertips. There are many ways to serve this chicken, but I prefer the traditional and beautifully
simple whole roasted!

  1. In large dutch oven or pot, combine all the ingredients except olive oil, quartered lemon and onion with about 1 cup of water and stir until blended and granules are dissolved.
  2. Add rinsed and cleaned chicken and 'bathe' to coat in brine.
  3. Add enough water to just cover chicken and place in fridge for 6 to 12 hours. The longer you marinate, the more tender and juicy so have at it.
  4. When ready, Preheat oven to 350*F and pat chicken dry. You do not have to rinse the chicken using this method.
  5. Place chicken back in washed and dried dutch oven and drizzle with olive oil.
  6. Stuff with halved lemon and onion. Truss if desired.
  7. Bake for about 2 1/2 hours until golden, basting every so often for nice coloring and internal temperature reaches at least 155 degrees.
  8. Allow to rest before transferring to platter or cutting board for serving and then season as desired to taste.
