Pasture Raised Roasted Whole Chicken with Citrus Pan Sauce Recipe

A citrus lover's roast chicken – made even tastier with our pasture raised 1915 Farm chicken. If you haven't tried it, it's unlike anything you've ever had! This recipe is excellent paired with roasted potatoes, a simple green salad, or even a nice rice pilaf. 

A recipe feature by Michaela Ginn w/ Never Say Never Wellness

Preheat oven to 425° 

Line roasting pan with foil and place roasting rack on top. Place the chicken on a cutting board breast side down, using the poultry shears, cut along the spine to remove entire backbone. See video link above.

Press down on the chicken until you hear a cracking sound. This is the sound of the breast bone breaking which allows the chicken to lay flat.

Turn the chicken over so that it is now breast side up and flatten completely.

Add the juice of limes and oranges to the bottom of the roasting dish, followed by the broth. Place all citrus rinds on the roasting tack, then place the chicken on top, breast side up. Tuck the wings under the breasts.
In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, and lemon pepper seasoning. Pour mixture over the chicken and massage evenly to cover every surface. Generously season the chicken with kosher salt.

Roast at 425° for 40-45 minutes or until the internal temperature is 155° (chicken continues to cook during the resting process). Start checking the temperature after 30 minutes as every oven is different
Let rest for 15 minutes before carving.  Pour half of the juice from the bottom of the roasting rack over chicken. Transfer the other half of the juices to a bowl for dipping. Enjoy!
