Elizabeth Edelman, Diabetes Daily Co-Founder, Type 1 PWD

1 roasting chicken, 4-5 lbs.
1 lemon, quartered
2 teaspoons lemon zest
3 Tablespoons fresh thyme
6 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to price cialis taste
1/4 cup white wine
1 cup chicken stock
2 teaspoons flour
Preheat your oven to 450°F. Mix the garlic, thyme, lemon zest, and olive oil together in a bowl. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place chicken in roasting pan and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, both inside and out. Rub all but 1 tablespoon garlic-thyme mixture over the chicken. Place the lemon in cavity of chicken and tie the legs together with a string.
Roast the chicken for 20 minutes on the high temperature. After that, reduce the oven temperature to 375°F. Roast chicken until meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of inner thigh registers 180°F, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Transfer the chicken to serving platter and tent with aluminum foil to keep warm.
Pour pan juices into large glass measuring cup. Spoon fat off the top. Add the wine to your pan and place over high heat. Bring to boil, scraping up any browned bits. Pour the wine into the measuring cup with pan juices -do not clean roasting pan just yet!  Add enough chicken broth to cup so that it measures 1 1/2 cups. Return broth mixture to same roasting pan. Mix flour into reserved 1 tablespoon garlic-thyme oil. Whisk into broth mixture. Boil broth mixture in roasting pan set over 2 burners until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Season pan juice to taste with salt and pepper. Pour into sauce boat and serve alongside the chicken.
