Simple but Flavorful Whole Chicken in the Dutch Oven

I’m back with more Dutch Oven goodness for you all! Dinner couldn’t be ANY easier than making this lovely whole chicken in the Dutch Oven–and I’m including the time it takes to stop at Costco for one of their rotisserie chickens!

I will admit, the Costco rotisserie chickens are tough to beat–value and taste-wise–but if I consider the time it takes me to get in and out of my local Costco to pick one up…not to mention the money I spend when I am in there! This MAY be a tie!!

And it was so easy! Simply throw a whole raw chicken into the pot, dress it with fresh lemons (2 lemons, sliced), some garlic and a drizzle of olive oil. Add oregano and salt and pepper, cover and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours in a 375 degree oven. Internal temperature should be 160 degrees.

Allow to rest for about ten minutes and serve! The meat–quite literally falls off the bone!

Can you tell I’m loving my Dutch Oven?!?
