Lemon juice, black peer, onion slivers inside andunder the bird as well as
in slits i make inthe breast, no salt as I use kosher cickenwhich has been
soaked an salted to remove excess blood, anherb or two and some mild curry
powder rubbed all over and even under the skin part way. I do the same
for turkeybefore roasting. with both birds, I make a thin gravy after
defattign the juices after roastin by adding water to the pamn and
scraping up all the flavorfull bits andthe onions from the bottom adn
tasting. Don't be afraid of adding too much water as you can always boil
it down until it tastes good.

Wendy
