Herbs de Provence Lemon Roasted Chicken

Continuation of cleaning out the freezer to make room for the new!

Easy, Easy, Easy folks!
This is such a wonderful and easy chicken to make, not many ingredients and key is, you can do somthing else while it cooks.  



The end result first!


The Players!



Wash chicken inside and out really well.  Cut off any excess fat.
Cover chicken with Herbs de Provence.



Zest lemon and add to chicken along with salt and pepper. 
Sprinkle olive oil all over the chicken.  



Place sliced lemons on breast of chicken with a little Herbs de Provence, salt and pepper.  Cover tightly with foil and place in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until juices run clear.



Remove from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes before carving.






The flavor is of the herbs in the Herbs de Provence and the lemon cooked on top really makes this chicken moist and succulent
