Roast Chicken with Rosemary and Lemon

Roasting a whole chicken is pretty simple to do, just season it, put it in the oven and walk away. As long as you have a thermometer you can’t go wrong. The combination of rosemary and lemon has a wonderful Mediterranean flavor. Serve this with roasted vegetables. You can use the leftover chicken bones to make a wonderful stock.
