This was my first attempt at a whole bird, so I read through a lot of the reviews before starting. Per the advice of other reviewers, I rubbed the bird inside and out with olive oil prior to stuffing and seasoning. I added several cloves of garlic (crushed) to the insides along with the onions. I also added two wedges of lemon, but I think I will forego these next time I make the recipe. I also cut slits in the top and stuffed them with bits of garlic. (Obviously, I love garlic.) I put it in a 425 degree oven for the first 15 minutes before turning it down to 350 for the remainder of the cooking time. It came out delicious and looked beautiful. It was very moist and juicy. I was so proud of myself! Thank you for a delicious recipe. My husband and I will be picking on this for the next few days which means I'll get a break from cooking on a weeknight. :)
