  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Place chicken on baking sheet or roasting dish and pat dry.

  2. In a food processor combine parsley, lemon zest, garlic, salt, and pepper. Blend until everything is finely minced and incorporated.

  3. Whilst food processor is running slowly drizzle in olive oil, juice of lemons, and mustard. Divide the marinade in half.

  4. If using whole chicken add half marinade to inside the cavity. If using spatchcock add half marinade to underside of the chicken.

  5. Use your finger to loosen the skin from the flesh and apply half the remaining marinade underneath the skin to directly touch the flesh of the chicken. Apply remaining marinade all over the outside of the chicken, making sure to get to all the nooks and crannies.

    Whole Roasted Lemon Garlic Chicken

    Roasting the chicken

    I hate the soggy underside (skin) of the chicken. Wouldn't it be better to put the chicken on a rack so that the bottom (breast) also gets brown and crispy?
