This low and slow cooking method makes this Lemon Garlic Roasted Chicken incredibly tender, juicy, and flavorful!

This Lemon Garlic Roasted Chicken is incredibly simple but seriously scrumptious! This low and slow oven roasting technique creates a deliciously tender meat, similar to what you get with a rotisserie chicken (similar, but not exactly the same). It also creates a delicious pan juice that you can spoon over the meat after slicing for even more flavor and moisture. It’s just to die for.

But be aware, this recipe is specifically for “split breasts” which means the breast has bones, skin, and rib meat in tact. The only thing that has been done to this chicken breast is that it has been “split” into two pieces. Boneless skinless breasts will not work the same way. You can potentially do other bone-in, skin on cuts of chicken, but the cooking time will be different because of the size of the pieces. I’ve only done this technique with split breasts so far, so that is the only cut that I can really provide correct cooking times and temperatures for.
