TIPS FOR ROASTED CHICKEN WITH LEMON AND HONEY

1. If the chicken starts to brown too much cover with aluminum foil.

2. We usually roast the chicken at 180ºC (350ºF) but, if you lower the temperature to 150ºC (300ºF), despite taking longer to roast, it has the advantage of enhancing much more the flavors and the chicken gets more tender.

3. If you have leftovers, store the chicken in the fridge in a properly covered container (to prevent the growth of microorganisms). To avoid drying out the chicken, do not reheat the food in the oven, reheat it in the microwave.
