A coastal exhibit and lemon chicken

Last night, me and two of my friends went to the opening of Abriendo Puertas (Opening Doors). It is an exhibit that is being hosted by El Pueblo, the latino outreach organization and the George Ohr Museum, showing photographs taken by immigrants within the area. The photographs were beautiful, and the stories were touching. I highly recomend visiting. It will be up until October 5. It is located at the USM-Long Beach Library on the Third Floor. Visit here for more information.

On the way home from the exhibit, I decided I wanted roasted chicken. I remember looking at a recipe, for lemon chicken, and remembering that all I needed was chicken and lemons, and I had all the rest of the stuff, so I stopped in the store grabbed lemons and a chicken, and headed home.

This is how easy the recipe was.....
I was on the phone with my best friend gabby.....and I made the whole thing, and popped it into the oven, before I was off the phone.

This was the best smelling thing ever. My house filled with this rich meat smell, and the smell of lemons within 15 minutes of putting it into the oven. This would be a great recipe to cook for guests, because the smell alone will impress them. In addition to the smell, the fact that the simplicity of the recipe renders such a delicious bird makes me think that this is one of the best recipes ever. It beats my Roasted Chicken and Sweet Potatoes.

Because is started it so late, I didnt get to taste it until 10pm, but I stood at my counter and ate the leg and the thigh, dipping it in the juices, and grabbing a roasted onion between bites of chicken. I am so happy I have this for lunch today. Alright so here is the recipe. NOW GO MAKE IT!!!!!!! and be impressed with your cooking skills!
