"Lemon Roasted Chicken is an easy recipe that you can whip up in just 1 hour! You can serve this buttery and lemony chicken recipe for the whole family on a lazy weeknight. Roasting a whole chicken may seem challenging to some home cooks, but it is as easy as counting from 1 to 3. You just have to follow the recipe and make sure that the internal temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 seconds. Digital thermometers are always your best bet when creating the perfect roast recipe. "
