You have this bird weighing about 3 lbs....what to do, what to do?? You open your vacation magnet stamped refrigerator door to see that you only have 1 onion & 1 Lemon and a Slab O' Butter (and half empty bottle of wine, that makes for another story) :) ....you run to your pantry in a panic.....your family is awaiting for a delish dinner..... Salt, pepper, olive oil.
I run to the phone to call my mother.....RING. "Hello my dear daughter"...Mother said sweetly. "Mom HELP!" I have a whole chicken, one onion, one lemon and a Slab O' butter....salt pepper and olive oil....what to do Mother? what to do????
Take your Birdie, salt and pepper the inside, stuff it with the whole Onion, whole Lemon cut in half, stuff butter on top and underneath lemon and onion.........rub olive oil, salt and pepper on the out side of your bird.....throw into oven at 375 for about 1 hour and a half (depending on size).....and BAM!!! You got your self a killer bird to feed your crew!!! How simple is that? Make yourself sum toasty bread and a green leafy salad. DONE. The Family Loves you! THANK YOU, Meine Muntter. (thats my mother in german if you didnt know)
BTW this is a chicken purchased at the Wild Wild West Farmers Market....the family said it was beyond good and taste so fresh....if your going to feed your loved ones meat..... Go local. Ban chemical warfare in our food products!
ENJOY! Oh and now's a good time to pull out that half bottle of wine.
