Yield: 4 to 6 Servings


  • 1 chicken, about 5 pounds

Combine the butter, dill, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice; rub under the skin and all over the chicken. Sprinkle the chicken and cavity with salt and pepper and drizzle with the remaining lemon juice. Put slices of lemon in the cavity, along with the onion pieces.
