Roast Chicken with Thyme and Onions
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 (2.5 pound) whole chickens
  • 2 large onions, peeled and quartered
  • 6 shallots, coarsely chopped
  • 8 cloves garlic, unpeeled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
  2. Pierce lemons several times with a fork, and place 1 inside each chicken cavity. Arrange chickens in the center of the prepared baking dish. Place onions, shallots, and garlic around the chickens. Sprinkle vegetables with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Spread butter over the chickens, and line each with thyme sprigs.
