Ingredients:  
1 whole chicken or turkey
1 large lemon, cut into halves
1 sprig of rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer

Directions:
Directions:
Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Rub butter or oil over the skin of the chicken/turkey until it is completely coated.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and any other seasonings you prefer.

Take a knife or your fingers and gently separate the skin from the breast meat;

Slide lemon halves under the skin with the peel side up, one on each side. This way the juice from the lemon will release into the breasts. If you place the lemons just so, your chicken/turkey will look like it has breast implants!! What a laugh at the dinner table.

Place sprig of rosemary into the chicken/turkey.

Cover and bake for 30-45 minutes. Remove cover and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes.
