This recipe feeds two adults with quite a hefty appetite. There is always a lot of chicken left overs, but if making this meal for more than two, increase the vegetable portions.

  4. Rinse the whole chicken inside and out and then dry. Drizzle olive oil and juice of one lemon over the chicken. After squeezed, place the lemon inside the chicken with 3 cloves of garlic. Salt and pepper the outside of the chicken very liberally.
  5. Place the chicken on top of the onions and carrots in the baking pan and then place in the oven for 1.5 hours or until the juices run clear.
