Very lovely! The chicken was moist and tender and the combination of flavours were delightful! Only made one change, used oregano for rosemary. And the jus I used drizzled over vegetables. Thank you for sharing a wonderful recipe Ellie! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

Super moist roast chicken! When family came in the reaction was "What smells so good?"! Always a good sign. My chicken didn't get as brown as the one photographed, but I layered the citrus over the chicken and rosemary. Great meal!
