This is my family's favorite recipe for chicken. I try to make at least 2 at a time so that I can have leftovers for chicken salad or sandwiches. Great when whole chickens are on sale!

Tasty Roast Chicken

Wash and dry 2 whole chickens.
Rub chicken inside and out with whatever seasoning you prefer. I use lemon pepper seasoning mixed with onion and garlic powder.
Place in large baggies, and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
Place chickens in roasting pan, stuff half of an onion in each chicken cavity.
Roast at 250 degrees F for 5 hours, uncovered. (chicken should be at an internal temp of at least 180)
Let stand 10 minutes prior to carving.

This sounds very good!

I have never cooked chicken with any kind of bone in it before and it scares me. You make it sound simple enough. :)

This reminds me of a recipe I saw recently....

Take a whole chicken, rub salt and pepper inside and out.

Poke 20 holes in two lemons (20 in each) and place them in the cavity. Tie the legs closed, but not air tight.

Bake the chicken as you would normally.

Never have tried it, but it sounded great to me.
