  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced

4. Rub herb mixture under loosened skin over breast; place lemon slices over herb mixture. Lift wing tips up and over back; tuck under chicken.

5. Place chicken, breast side up, on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Insert meat thermometer into meaty part of thigh, making sure not to touch bone. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 1 hour or until thermometer registers 180°. Let stand 15 minutes before serving. Remove and discard skin before eating, if desired (analysis does not include skin).
