I have to admit… I ate this roasted pesto chicken before I really got a chance to take a picture. Yeah, it was that good.
I cooked this whole chicken very similiar to the way I cooked last year’s Thanksgiving turkey. I removed the insides from the chicken, then stuffed it with white onion, garlic and lemon slices. Then I smeared cilantro pesto under the skin.
Then I roasted the chicken in a bag, at 350 degrees, for about 2 hours. My oven usually takes a little longer though so adjust your time accordingly.
Mmmm smells so good.
Cut the chicken and be sure there is not any pink. This chicken will be very moist and tender.
