"A whole chicken is stuffed with lemon slices, then layered with garlic slices and thyme sprigs. The whole thing is wrapped up in parchment paper to keep it moist as it bakes, trapping in all of the wonderful juices!"
1 (4 pound) whole chicken
salt and pepper to taste
1 large lemon, sliced
6 cloves garlic, sliced
6 sprigs thyme
1.Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2.Place a large sheet of parchment paper into the middle of a roasting tray. The parchment must be large enough to completely envelop the chicken. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, stuff with half of the lemon slices, and place breast side up in the middle of the parchment paper. Sprinkle garlic slices, and thyme sprigs evenly over the chicken. Lay the remaining lemon slices over the breast. Fold the parchment over the chicken forming a loose parcel.
3.Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken has cooked, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. A meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of the thigh should reach 180 degrees F
