Ingredients
 

  • pound skinless boneless light and dark meat chicken  giblets removed
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 Myer or regular lemon
  • 4 small shallot peeled
  • cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and get a medium-sized roasting pan ready.
  • Take the chicken and sprinkle it with ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Fold the chicken's wings under it and tie its legs together using kitchen string. Now, place the chicken in the roasting pan with its breast facing up.
  • Put the lemon halves, cut side down, into the roasting pan around the chicken. Also, scatter the shallots around the chicken.
  • Roast the chicken in the oven for 30 minutes. After that, add some broth to the pan. Keep roasting until a thermometer stuck into the chicken's thigh shows 165°F (about 74°C). This will take around 30 minutes more.
  • Once it's done, take the chicken out of the oven and let it sit on a cutting board for about 10 minutes.
  • After the chicken has cooled a bit, chop the shallots into small pieces. Put these shallots into a mini-food processor.
  • Remove any fat from the juices in the pan. Add those juices, along with the remaining ¼ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper, into the food processor. Pulse it until the sauce becomes smooth.
  • To carve the chicken. Cut it into pieces and divide them among 6 plates. Sprinkle some parsley on top.
  • Serve the chicken with the sauce and the lemon halves. Just remember to remove the skin before eating.
