Rustic Baked Chicken

This is probably one of my families favorite Shabbos dinner foods. So easy and impressive enough to serve for company.


  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 1 hr min
  • Ready Time : 21 min


6-8 People


  • 1 whole Roasting Chicken clean inside & out wipe dry
  • 1 onion
  • 2 lemon
  • 2 pinches rosemary dry, crushed, add any herbs you like
  • 1 pinch salt & pepper
  • olive oil


Wash and dry the chicken. Sprinkle inside with salt, pepper, and rosemary.

Slice lemon in thin slices; insert slices under the skin of the breast and the neck, being careful not to break the skin. Put the remaining slices in the cavity of the chicken. Mix rosemary, salt, pepper and any other herbs you like with the olive oil and brush entire chicken. If using fresh herbs but a couple of sprigs in the joints of the wings and the thighs. Bake at 375 for 1 1/2 hours or until juices run clear. Let rest 10-15 minutes before carving.

    Love the new math: 20 minutes plus one hour equals 21 minutes! Otherwise, it looks yummy!!!

    you mention an onion in the recipe but you don’t tell us what to do with it.

    You should add a picture to each recipe which would make it more desirable to prepare.

    • We all love pictures, but not everyone is able to take pictures of their recipes, however we are working on a way for others to submit their pictures too – for now if you make a dish that doesn’t have a pictures you can send it to info@joyofkosher.com and we can put it up for the community enjoyment.

  5. This dish was excellent, highly recommend from the JOK team.

  6. thank you, glad you enjoyed it. It is so simple and it looks and tastes so elegant. I just retired after working most of my adult life. We have three children, so I learned to cook easy recipes that I could have ready without a lot of fuss. I am a bit compulsive though. I still figure out dinners for a week or 2 ahead of time, post them on a calendar and shop around those meals.

  7. Looks delicious. Will have to make this. My basheret likes to have soup for Shabbat all winter long.
