Thinly sliced lemons -- whether slipped beneath the skin of a chicken or scattered around it in a pan -- emit an incomparable aroma when roasted, taking on a honeyed overtone without losing any of their sassy edge.

Cook's Notes

Grilling lemons can achieve the same effect as roasting. Thinly slice or quarter the fruit, toss with olive oil, and grill until lightly charred and softened. Squeeze over food, or serve as an edible garnish.

    This recipe is great for a first time roaster! It's delicious and amazing. The potatoes were so tender and full of flavor. Maybe next time I'll add onions to the pan.
