> 1 lemon
> 3 tbsp Nature's Promise Organic U.S. Grade A Golden Honey
> 1 (4- 5 lb) Nature's Promise Antibiotic-Free Whole Chicken
> 1/2 (0.5 oz) pkg fresh rosemary
> 2 tbsp olive oil


Preheat oven to 375°F. Place a wire rack on a large, foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Into a small bowl, zest the lemon. Halve lemon and squeeze 1 tbsp juice into bowl (do not discard lemon). Stir in the honey and set aside.
With kitchen shears, trim any excess fat from the chicken. Season insides of chicken with salt and pepper. Add lemon halves and rosemary to chicken cavity. Tie legs together and tuck wings behind. Rub the oil all over outside of chicken. Generously season outside of chicken with salt.
Roast 1 hour, brushing with honey mixture every 20 min. Increase oven temperature to 450°F. Roast chicken another 15 min., until a thermometer inserted between the thigh and drumstick reaches 165°F and skin is golden brown.
Remove chicken from oven and let rest at least 15 min. before carving.


Garnish with extra lemon slices and rosemary sprigs.
