Roasted Lemon Marinated Chicken

Taking the time to put together some ingredients to make a marinade is so worth it.  This marinade gives the chicken lots of flavor.  The lemon gives the chicken a wonderful taste and it acts as a tenderizer too.  Enjoy the chicken with some vegetables and perhaps some mashed potatoes or rice. Since I'm trying to eat healthier I will have mine with a Greek Salad.

Marinade Ingredients:

1 whole chicken cleaned
Juice of 2 lemons (keep 2 lemon halves)
1 tsp of onion powder
1 tsp of garlic powder
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 tsp of balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp of olive oil
1/2 tsp of dry oregano
1/2 tsp of dry rosemary
1/2 tsp of thyme
1/2 tsp of black pepper
1 1/2 tbsp of salt

Preheat oven at 350 Degrees F

Place the chicken on a roasting pan.  Mix all of the ingredients.  Rub the chicken inside and out with the marinade.  Insert the lemon halves inside the chicken.  Let the chicken rest for about 20 minutes before baking.  Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes covered and uncovered for the last 30 minutes.
