Subj:....Lemon Breast Chicken - Great Recipe (S513c) 
         From: darrell94590 on 11/21/2006

I saw this recipe for a lemon breast chicken that looked really good. I thought I would share it with others who are forced into the kitchen several times a week. 

Anyway, here it is: 


   1 whole chicken (weight is dependent
      on how many servings are required) 
   1 large lemon, cut into halves
   sprig of rosemary
   salt and pepper to taste
   butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Rub butter or oil over the skin of the chicken until it is completely coated. 

Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the breast meat; slide lemon halves under the skin with the peel side up.  This way the juice from the lemon will coat the breast.  Season skin of chicken to your preference; place sprig of rosemary into the chicken. Cover and place in oven for 30-45 minutes.  Remove cover and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes, depending on size of the bird.

If you've followed these steps correctly, your chicken should look like the one in the picture. Bon Appetit!   (see below...) 
Gotcha!!!!    Ha  Ha
