I have often heard recipes similar to this dubbed 'proposal chicken' because supposedly if you bake it for your boyfriend it's good luck in the waiting for a marriage proposal department. I never made this for Eric when he was my boyfriend, but I make roast chicken every now and then because it's easy and unbelievably CHEAP!
A small chicken costs me less than $5!! That's less than a package of three chicken breasts. Here is my personal recipe for a delicious roast chicken.
1 whole chicken (I buy the tyson brand from wal-mart)
lemon juice or a lemon
2. Get chicken out of the package and drain any juices from it that you can. Squeeze lemon juice over chicken and then apply seasonings generously (go light on the garlic powder though) and drizzle with honey.
4. There will be a lot of juice in the baking dish when the chicken is cooked, see below
