My all time weekly fav!

Pre heat oven to 375

Clean a 4-6 lb whole chicken ( pull out the insides!)

Place in a baking dish, season and rub in salt and pepper, and season inside the  chicken as well.

drizzle olive oil all over and rub in

1 lemon zested over the top of chicken

slice lemon in half and squeeze 1/2 on top and inside chicken. Stuff both halves into chicken

Stuff 4 garlic cloves inside chicken

3 garlic cloves diced and spread over the top of the chicken

pour 1/4 cup of water into the baking dish.

Place in middle rack and bake for 55-70 min, Juices should run clear. Half way thru I pick up the chicken with thongs and empty the juices. Also at the end time, should let chicken rest out of oven for about 5-10 min.
