Talking Grapefruit chicken ( for Alix)

Alix...I haven't tried this yet.

1 3-4 lb whole roasting chicken
1 grapefruit cut in half
1 tablespoon olive oil ( I think it'll take a little more)
1/2 tsp seasoned salt

preheat oven to 400 degrees

Put chicken in roasting pan and squeeze the juice from the grapefruit
over the chicken.

Drizzle with the olive oil and then sprinkle with the seasoned salt.

Cover with tin foil.

Bake for 45 minutes.

Remove foil.

bake 15-25 minutes or until no longer pink and thermometer reads 180 degrees.

That sounds delicious. I make a similar dish, but using lemons instead of grapefruit... I use a bit more olive oil though and put a halved lemon (skin and everything) into the cavity before roasting.

Thanks pdswife! It sounds lovely. Ishbel, I've done it your way and it is wonderful. I never thought of using a grapefruit.

Ishbel that does sound good.
I was thinking that the inside would need some flavor... maybe I should put half of the grapefruit inside?

I find putting the lemon inside (I used to leave it whole and just make sure I'd pierced the whole lemon to release the juice/steam.... THEN there was the incident where I forgot to pierce the lemon.... and the chicken nearly EXPLODED! ) gives a lot of flavour as the lemon heats up and the juice steams and impregnates the meat.

I make roast chicken the way Ishbel has described....I cut my lemon in half though, squeeze some of the juice over and shove the rest into the cavity.

It is superb. So easy after work for supper.

I made this tonight and it was really good!

I let the chicken soak all day in salt water with the juice of one orange added.
And then when time came to cook it I put one half of the grape fruit inside the chicken and used extra olive oil on the outside and also a little extra seasoning salt.


The rosemary potatoes were great too!
I added lots of garlic and parsley too.
Yummy! They were nice and toasty brown. Just perfect.

The chicken bones are simmering on the stove now becoming
a delishous broth. Boy the house smells good!
