From Virginia Wiedemann: "This is just about the best baked chicken you ever ate. This recipe came from 'Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking ' by Marcella Hazan, and I firmly believe that this is one of the best cookbooks ever. All of her recipes are simply wonderful! "
1 whole (cleaned, of course) chicken
Preheat oven to 350░ F.
Sprinkle chicken inside and outside with Chef's Salt (or regular salt) and freshly ground pepper. Puncture lemons in about 20 places with a sharp fork. Put lemons inside the cavity; sew it up and bake it covered for 45 minutes to one hour, till done.
"That's all! You can make two of these at once: eat one "as is", and save one for a recipe that calls for cooked chicken. Delicious!!!"
