    This was pretty good, but not my favorite roast chicken recipe. The aromatics in the cavity didn't add much flavor. The onions in the pan were pretty flavorful, but some burned. The sauce was very rich.

    One winter years ago I spent almost every Sunday trying out different roast chicken recipes. We tried all kinds of recipes, but this one was the hands down winner. Now when I make a roast chicken, I don't think twice and I don't use the recipe. I've made this dish probably more often than any other dish I can think of.

    Moist and delicious and simple to prepare. My only problem was that I separated the onion slices into rings and some of them were seriously charred. Foe the sauce, I just whisked the flour in as I sprinkled it on thru a sieve, no lumps.

    Pg 122 This is one of the simplest yet most flavourful roast chicken I have ever made. As per usual Ina's instructions are spot on and the recipe yields just what one would expect, a moist bird with a delicious sauce. The amount of onions seemed a bit much when I was putting it together but I was very glad that I followed her suggestion as the sauce is made lusciously savoury by the large amount of onions. My only suggested change woudl be to take a few tablespoons of the pan liquid and blend it with the flour before adding the flour to the pan, as when I did it the sauce did lump a little bit, so I had to whisk it out.

    Pg. 122. This is delicious! It's very moist and flavorful. The onion/lemon mixture adds a nice flavor accent. The cook time of 1.25 hours was exactly right for my 4.5 lb chicken. I did not make the gravy -- it's probably even better with that.
