  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine the seasoning, salt, mustard powder, garlic powder and black pepper; set aside. Rinse the chicken thoroughly, and remove the giblets. Place chicken in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons of the spice mixture inside the chicken. Rub the remaining mixture on the outside of the chicken.
  3. Squeeze the juice of the 2 lemons into a small bowl or cup, and mix with the olive oil. Drizzle this oil/juice mixture over the chicken.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours, or until juices run clear, basting several times with the remaining oil mixture.

Very good. I used boneless, skinless breasts; dumped on all the olive oil and lemon juice then sprinkled both sides with the herb blend. Tasty and tender. Baked at 350 for 30 min.

Without a doubt, one of the best chicken recipes I've found on this site to date. I just mixed all of the seasonings with the oil (doubled for a 5 lb. chicken) and brushed over the chicken. Stuf...

i read somewhere on this site in the cooking tips section that brining the chicken would add extra flavor so it really worked. those who found it bland may want to try that. i left out the seas...

This recipe gets five stars the first night & three the next. I got a Perdue (big) chicken so doubled the ingredients. If you double it, don't double the oil. It was very oily. I used 1/2cup...
