Easy lemon Chicken breast recipe

Easy lemon chicken breast recipe. Roasting chicken breasts can be tricky and special effort has to be made to keep the breasts from drying out. I received this recipe from someone via email and ….well needless to say I was very tempted to try!!! I can say with authority that this recipe works, it made my family scream with laughter and best of all…..the breasts were juice and tender as expected!!!

Recipe for Lemon Chicken Breasts


1 sprig of rosemary
1 whole chicken
salt and pepper
olive oil
1 lemon
1 can of beer – drink half and keep other 1/2 in the tin


Easy lemon chicken breast recipe. Rub oil all over the chicken and season inside and out. Use your fingers to loosen the skin from the breasts and slide the 2 halve lemons in, skin-side up. This way the juice of the lemon will coat the breasts and keep it from drying out! Place the sprig of rosemary inside the chicken and place the chicken in an upright position on the beer can and cover with foil. Roast for 40 minutes and remove the foil. Roast for another 10-15 minutes, basting every 5 minutes until the chicken is golden brown and the skin is lovely and crisp!
