Instructions
  1. In medium pan heat oil and butter over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic 1 minute. Add 4 tablespoons lemon juice, lemon rind, dijon mustard. Stir to infuse flavors 1 minute, remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Place chicken in a small roasting pan or glass baking pan.
  4. Spoon sauce between chicken skin and meat, reserving some for the body cavity and outside of chicken. Rub sauce over chicken, add water, cover and bake 6-8 hours or until thermometer reached 160 degrees (google proper internal temperature of a chicken).
Recipe Notes

Recipe found on www.culinarybutterfly.com
-The chicken will be cooked when the thermometer reaches 160 degrees, however, allowing it to slow roast longer creates a more tender chicken.
-Be sure to spoon the liquid from the pan over the meat every few hours to keep the meat moist while roasting.

  1. Hi there ~ You may want to change the cooking time if the temp is at 350… to 2.5 hrs… because 6-8 hours at 350 degrees will leave a very dry chicken… I am thinking…. 😉
