roasting chicken (2 lbs is perfect for serving 2 - you only get about half meat per pound of the bird)
extra virgin olive oil
4 new potatoes
clean the outside of the chicken, and inside the cavity. pat dry with a paper towel.
rub olive oil on the outside of the chicken.
salt and pepper the outside and inside of the chicken and stuff the cavity with quartered lemon, onion, garlic and rosemary sprigs. place chicken into dutch oven or roasting pan.
add quartered potatoes and onions, garlic and mushrooms in the pan around the chicken. sprinkle rosemary and add a bit more olive oil on the veggies. bake at 400 degrees for about an hour and a half. juices will run clear when chicken is complete!
