Low carb recipe for Greek Roasted Chicken which belongs to the Poultry recipe category.
- 3 to 4 pounds (1.4 to 1.8 kg) of chicken (whole, split in half, cut-up
- broiler-fryer, or cut-up parts of your choice)
- cup (60 ml) lemon juice
- cup (120 ml) olive oil
- teaspoon salt
- teaspoon pepper
Wash the chicken and pat it dry with paper towels.
Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper and stir them together well.
If you're using a whole chicken, rub it all over with some of this mixture, making sure to rub plenty inside the body cavity as well.
If you're using cut-up chicken, put it in a large resealable plastic bag, pour the marinade over it, and seal the bag.
Let the chicken marinate for at least an hour or as long as a day.
At least 1 hour before you want to serve the chicken, pull it out of the bag.
You can either grill your chicken or you can roast it in a 375F (190C, or gas mark 5) oven for about 1 hour.
Either way, cook it until the juices run clear when it's pierced to the bone.
