Any chicken lovers out there? This one is from  Turbo Fire’s Nutrition Guide. Let me know if you try it! Please leave a comment to let me know what you think.

What you need:

1 Whole Chicken, about 3 lbs.
2 Tbsp. dried rosemary, thyme, sage, marjoram or any combination of herbs (if using fresh herbs reduce amount to 1 Tbsp.)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
9 or 3 cloves of garlic crushed
Butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray
Salt and pepper to taste

What to do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Clean chicken and place breast side up on rack in roasting pan. Squeeze lemon juice inside chicken, or rub inside of chicken with crushed garlic. Use 10 spritzes of butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray to coat outside of chicken and sprinkle evenly with herbs, salt, and pepper.

Cover chicken with foil and bake for 55 min. Bake uncovered for 15 additional min. or until juices run clear (meat thermometer inserted between leg and body should reach 180 degrees F). Serve chicken without skin to reduce calories. One serving should be about 4 oz. of skinless, boneless light and dark meat.

Serve with roasted root vegetables.
