Fast & Easy Recipe for Pan-Roasted Chicken


  1. 1 whole chicken
    1/4 cup paprika
    1 teaspoon garlic salt
    1 teaspoon salt
    3 lemons, sliced


  1. Preheat your oven to 425ºF.
  2. Slice the lemons and arrange in a single layer in a baking dish or skillet.
  3. Use a kitchen shears to cut away the backbone and open the chicken, pressing gently along the breastbone so it lays flat.
  4. Place on a plate and sprinkle with half the seasoning and rub into the chicken. Move onto the lemons and sprinkle with remaining seasoning.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165ºF. Tent with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  6. Serves 4.
