In this recipe from Casey Coleman of Tallahassee, Florida, the chicken develops a delicate, citrusy fragrance and flavor. Simply stuff lemon wedges and a handful of fresh herbs into the cavity before roasting.

    This recipe is terrible. The 425 roasting temperature is far too high for an uncovered situation. The chicken spatters all over the inside of the oven and then vaporizes to fill your kitchen with acrid chicken smoke fog. It was a disaster. I had to move it outside to my grill to finish cooking as the whole house was filled with smoke. Martha must never have tried this as she would have a $hitfit if this much smoke permeated her home.
