Cool-jams Lemon Chicken

Lemon Chicken From Cool-jams

Our absolute favorite way to prepare chicken. A whole chicken is rubbed inside and out with herbs, then baked with a drizzle of lemon and olive oil for a light Italian dish.Enjoy!! 


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


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.
