Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken

Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients:
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (3 pound) whole chicken
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine the seasoning, salt, mustard powder, garlic powder and black pepper; set aside. Rinse the chicken thoroughly, and remove the giblets. Place chicken in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons of the spice mixture inside the chicken. Rub the remaining mixture on the outside of the chicken.
  3. Squeeze the juice of the 2 lemons into a small bowl or cup, and mix with the olive oil. Drizzle this oil/juice mixture over the chicken.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours, or until juices run clear, basting several times with the remaining oil mixture.
