Roasted Chicken With Meyer Lemon Sauce

There are thousands of convoluted recipes for roasting chicken, but after all the brining, turning, and fussing, it turns out simple is best. Buy the best quality bird you can afford (pasture-raised birds taste best because their diet includes natural proteins), stuff it with lemon and herbs, and roast it at one temperature. A simple glaze of floral Meyer lemon and honey at the end of roasting gives the bird a beautiful golden skin. A simple pan sauce is all the adornment this roast chicken needs, though you could roast a tray of Brussels sprouts in the oven at the same time during the last 35 minutes of cooking.

RD Tip

This easy prep chicken makes for a low-maintenance meal. Serve alongside your favorite green vegetable, and add a starch like quinoa or sweet potato for a complete meal.

Active time: 10 minutes Total time: 2 hours (plus standing time of 1 hour)
