Roasted Lemon Breast Chicken

I saw this picture for a lemon breast chicken that looked really good especially for Thanksgiving which remind me of a few angmoh and those residing in angmoh country that celebrating them today. I thought I would share the recipes with others who are forced into the kitchen. Anyway, here it is:


1 whole chicken (weight is dependent on how many servings are required)
1 large lemon, cut into halves
spring of rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer
Five spice powder
Dark soy sauce
Heat oven to 350 degrees


Rub butter or oil, five spice power and dark soy sauce over the skin of the chicken until it is completely coated. Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the breast meat; slide lemon halves under the skin with the peel side up. This way the juice from the lemon will coat the breast.

Season skin of chicken to your preference; place spring of rosemary into the chicken.

Cover and place in oven for 30-45 minutes. Remove cover and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes, depending on size of the bird.

If you’ve followed these steps correctly, your chicken should look like the one in the picture. Bon Appetit! and Happy Thanksgiving 😆
