Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken

I love the taste of lemon chicken! And the blend of lemon, rosemary, thyme, and garlic in this recipe keeps me coming back to it over and over!

The bonus is that a meal including a good quality protein source such as this one (along with some tasty vegetables) is a great way to boost your metabolism.

By cooking this chicken covered for most of the cooking time, it stays moist and juicy. A little browning at the end is all it needs. Enjoy!
