A kid who went to a different school than I did got scurvy in like 2001, he had a bet with his friend to see who could go longer eating only Kraft Dinner and drinking only beer. I forget how long it took, but his mum must have been proud.

Pretty simple.  Olive oil massage.  Salt, black pepper, rosemary dry rub.  My aunt got us this porcelain roaster that the chicken sits in and it has a reservoir that you can fill with beer or whatever (we used chicken stock because it's what we had on hand) that you stick up the chicken's butt.  Went 15 minutes at 450 (which cracked the roaster--damnit), the another hour and a half at 375.  Perfect.  Fell right off the bone.

That sound yummy!  I'd add lemon.  I've never used a roaster like that though.  I usually just shove random things into the cavity.  Tarragon is nice too with chicken.

Tarragon!  Excellent.  I wanted to use chipotle, but the wife's stomach is a tad delicate lately so we're not doing much spice.  And how would you add the lemon?  Lemon wedges in the cavity, or rub the juice?

And you can make this kind of roaster with a baking pan and a can of beer.

avery of the dead from Kentucky is reading Cipher Sisters February 3, 2012 - 10:27am

Well, I will use one lemon cut in half.  One half goes inside.  The other half you slice and lay the slices on top of the chicken as it roasts.  That way you get lemon, but it isn't overwhelming.

What I like to do for lemony chicken is to mix fresh grated lemon zest in with butter, with a little salt and pepper, and then rub the lemony butter stuff between the skin and the meant, its kind of gross to do, to be honest, but it makes the skin SO CRISPY and buttery and the meat gets infused with lemons. Oh yeah and then the zested lemons just get sliced up and stuffed inside the chicken, and whatever's left throw around the bottom of the pan. I think I will make that next pay day. Yummy.

You scrape the skin of the lemon.  That's a zest.

Popeye, I am nowhere near DC. Although one of my favourite girlfriends moved there, so I MAY visit at some point. But since I can't afford chicken except on a bi-monthly basis, I doubt that will be in the foreseeable future.

I have yet to take off to begin my drinking tonight. In about 15-20 minutes. This site has me sucked in and I can't help but check it every three or four minutes. As for choking that is yet to be decided. I don't do it unless they ask me. Trying to stay away from that kind of stuff. I think it's too personal and should be left to the wedding night. lol

I have my outline down and working out how I want it to come across. Humor, drama, and horror are all on the plate for me right now. Since I'm military and I'm no stranger to this scenario I have conflicting views on how to tackle it.

@Utah - a bit late, but I was telling my husband about the chicken stuff last night and he said that I have never put tarragon on our chicken.  We argued about it a lot.  Because of course I KNOW what I do or do not put on my own chicken.  He was right.  It's thyme.  I put thyme on it.  Hope I didn't ruin any lives.
