This is an absolute winner of a roast chicken recipe! I cook roast chicken about once a week, and really love the flavors of this one. I used Marcella Hazan's variation on lemons inside, rolling lemons on counter then punching them 10/20 times with a skewer, but I also added the juice of a lemon on the inside cavity, just in case. I used organic multicolored carrots from Trader Joe's instead of baby parsnips and herbs from the garden - very fresh and bright tasting. Only be aware if you like crispy skin all around, the bottom (back of the chicken) will not crisp since it is bathed in the juices. Pour the juice in gravy boat (after defatting) and serve on side. Going into regular rotation, thanks for posting.

I tried this recipe and while it tastes good, you really can't roast this chicken in just an hour. Next time I make it I will probably leave it in for double the recommended time at least, maybe more like 3 hours. The chicken was still raw on the inside when we cut into it after an hour and a half. We ended up cutting some off and finishing it in the microwave so we could feed the kids, and then roasting the rest for stock after dinner. Disappointed in this unrealistic recipe for logistical reasons, but taste is fine.

      Comments about Le Creuset Roast Chicken with Lemon and Herbs:

      This recipe was really light and fresh. Delicious and easy. Regarding the above reviews- this bird was topless in the oven and definitely plan on doubling the cooking time and in the last 20 min I went up to 375. I also added three cloves of crushed garlic and extra salt in the initial prep. Really great.

          Comments about Le Creuset Roast Chicken with Lemon and Herbs:

          I love this recipe. The chicken turn out great. I used a 5.5 lb Chicken and used a oven thermometer to let me know when it was done. I also used a 5 gt braiser. It only took an extra 30 min. You should always use a oven thermometer when cooking chicken in the oven. Baby carrots were used instead of parsnips. I love the presentation that this gave.

            Comments about Le Creuset Roast Chicken with Lemon and Herbs:

            The chicken was very moist and the taste was excellent. It took a little longer to cook than listed. I believe the extra cooking time may have been caused by my use of the lid during cooking. Is this recipe top on during cooking or top off?

            Comments about Le Creuset Roast Chicken with Lemon and Herbs:

            This is a very good recipe that is easy and turns out well. We had to extend the time out to about 75 minutes but that may be just due to our oven. The chicken temped out to 180 and was very juicy. The flavor of the chicken is brought out, not covered with sauces and spices. It's healthy and light. Uses lots of herbs, our herb garden took a haircut. It could be improved if you could figure out how to get the skin crispy.

              Comments about Le Creuset Roast Chicken with Lemon and Herbs:

              I roast chickens all the time to make my own stock so the family is used to the semi weekly meal. When I saw this recipe and HAD to try it! First off, I've never made a chicken in the braiser. Everything I stuffed inside made the chicken SO moist (which my chickens usually aren't). The family loved the flavor and how moist it was. I will never roast a chicken my old way again :)

              This was delicious and easy except it took longer to cook than the recipe stated. I may have used the wrong type of LeCreuset, im researching that now.
