Roasted Garlic Whole Chicken

This is good tasting and easy to make.
It might seem like a lot of garlic but
believe me everyone will want a whole head.
One garlicky bird should feed four people.

1 whole chicken
1 whole fresh lemon
6 whole heads of garlic
6 rosemary sprigs
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
Remove chicken from plastic and
pat the bird dry using paper towels.
Cut tops off of the heads of garlic
and place in the cavity of the chicken.
Cut lemon in half and place inside the
cavity of the bird with the rosemary.
Place chicken in a roasting pan.
Coat the chicken all over with oil.
Season with salt and black pepper.
Bake in oven for 15 minutes then
reduce heat to 350 degrees F.
Bake for another 40 minutes or
until chicken juices run clear.
Let rest 15 minutes before serving.
Serve each person a whole head of garlic.
