Citrus-stuffed poultry always seems to turn out moist, and this roasted chicken also gets doused with lemon juice for extra flavor.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 (4 pound) whole chicken
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 1 lemon, halved
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 cup water
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
Rub chicken with salt inside and out. Squeeze lemon juice from lemon halves over outside of chicken, then rub paprika over all. Place squeeze lemon halves inside chicken cavity, then place chicken in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour a little water over chicken to prevent drying.
Bake at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 3 hours, basting with water as needed.
