This is so very moist and delicious! If you can find an organic chicken ( and can afford it nowadays), it will be juicier than one that's conventionally raised. (better for you too.) In this recipe, the chicken is butterflied for quicker cooking. I add pieces of the lemon that I squeeze the lemon juice from around the chicken for even more flavor. If you can't find the juniper berries in your neck of the woods, use a few teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce, it still makes a wonderful roast chicken. Depending on your oven, this may take less then 90 minutes, check after 70 minutes. Other herbs can be used in place of the rosemary, such as thyme or sage. This is actually better if you prepare it ahead of time before roasting and let it set in the fridge. This is adapted from a Deborah Madison recipe from Bon Appetit, Feb. 2008. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!
