Chicken 101: Roasted Lemon Butter Garlic Chicken

Chicken 101: Roasted Lemon Butter Garlic Chicken 

Kiss your dry chicken good bye and send it away flying.  There's a new bird in town, this crisp, succulent and juicy Roasted Lemon Butter Garlic Chicken.  Intrigued?  The chicken is flavored with compound butter under the skin, stuffed with lemon and onion and left to hang out in the fridge for several hours or overnight to crisp up the skin.
 
Then the bird is off to a hot oven, lazily resting on long, unpeeled carrots, that provide the space for the heat to circulate and at the same time soak in the chicken juices and turn into delectable orange flavor vehicles.  Baste the chicken every so often and salt the skin only at the last moment - that way it really truly stays crisp.
