  1. Preheat the oven to 365°F (185°C).
  2. Prepare the chicken by drying it thoroughly with paper towels. Season the entire chicken with salt and pepper, including the cavity. Don't skimp on the salt! Next, rub the outside of the chicken with the barbecue seasoning, and then place it in a baking dish.
  3. Surround the chicken with the onion and lemon wedges, and then evenly place the butter slices on top of the chicken.
  4. Move the baking dish to the lower oven rack, and bake for 50 minutes or more, depending on the size of the chicken. Frequently baste the chicken with drippings, and if necessary, add water.

    It always amazes me to see how European butter cuts like cheese and holds its shape because of the fat content. American butter does not do that!

    Yum. I always boil up the giblets to make stock for the gravy.

    I do love a good roast chicken. I would shove the butter under the skin for even more chickeny buttery goodness!

    I love the recipes of Anne Aobadia and I am asking if her coock book was also published in English language or not? I would like to have it.
    My second question is concerning the cake graph which is visible via phone cell but when I open the recipe on PC, the graph is not there. What is wrong???

    My next door neighbor gave me a dressed pheasant one day,and suggested I use vinegar on it. Well I did,along with sage,garlic,butter,salt,pepper and a dash of curry. It was wonderful!
    So if you don't have lemon,try vinegar.

    A great recipe! We have this every Sunday night now.
    You can put the butter between the skin and the meat.
    The leftover bones make a good bone broth boiled up in water.

    And so easy! This is also a great starter for any of our dishes the require rotisserie or shredded chicken--if you have leftovers :)
