We bought a 3 pack of chickens from Costco yesterday, and today I roasted them all at the same time. Once I strip all the meat off the bones I'll cook stock with them, and use the leftover meat as starters for more meals this month. It took me some time to perfect this roasting business, but this is what I do.
3 whole chickens
1 lemon, cut into 3 large chunks
1 onion, cut into 3 large chunks
6 whole garlic cloves
1/4 tsp water
sea salt and pepper
Baby potatoes, if desired.
Preheat the oven to 375*F.
Remove the string holding the chickens together. Take 1 piece of lemon and onion, and 2 garlic cloves, and put into each chicken. Spread them out in the roasting pan so they are mostly separated from each other. Add the water, sprinkle the potatoes around the chickens, and salt/pepper each chicken.
Put the chickens in the oven, set the timer for about 2 hours, and walk away. They'll brown beautifully and will be moist and flavourful for dinner. This was served with my Spanakopita tarts and a Greek salad.
