    Ingredients
    • 1 whole chicken with skinfree-range, hormone-free, antibiotic-free
    • 2cups fresh lemon juiceabout 8-10 fresh lemons
    • 2tablespoons fresh sagechopped
    • 2tablespoons fresh thymechopped (or you may use any of your favorite herbs)
    • 2tablespoons macadamia nut oil
    • 1tablespoon sea salt
    • 1/2teaspoon black pepperor to taste
    Instructions
    1. Rinse chicken and pat dry.
    2. In a bowl just large enough to contain the chicken, but with as little extra space as possible, pour the lemon juice, reserving about 2 tablespoons. Place the chicken in the lemon juice. If the chicken is not covered completely with lemon juice, you will need to turn it halfway through the marinating process. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for two hours.
    3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    4. In a small bowl, mix sage, thyme, macadamia nut oil, reserved lemon juice, and sea salt (if desired).
    5. After 2 hours, remove chicken from lemon juice marinade and place on a cutting board. Rub chicken evenly with herb mixture, covering both the outside and the inside cavity.
    6. Place chicken upright on the roasting rack. Place the rack in a roasting pan and place in the oven. Placing the chicken upright allows the fat to drip down, yet allows the meat to remain tender. Bake for 1½ hours or until internal temperature reaches 180 degrees at the thighs.
    7. Remove chicken from the oven, remove from roasting rack, lay flat, and cover with foil for 10 minutes to allow juices to redistribute.
    Recipe Notes

    This recipe requires marinating the chicken for at least two hours. You will need an upright roasting rack for best results.
