About this Recipe

Cooking a Roasted Chicken from scratch is easier than you think! Make sure to garnish this elegant dish with roasted figs and fresh rosemary.


15 ml Lemon zest
45 ml Chopped parsley
2 Cloves garlic, finely minced
15 ml Chopped fresh rosemary, plus
1 Whole sprig
1 Lemon, quartered
5 ml Olive oil
1 Whole Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® chicken, about 3 1/2 lbs (1.5 kg)
2 Medium onions, cut into eighths
45 ml Soy sauce
45 ml Olive oil
4 Whole fresh figs or 2 peaches, halved and quartered
Rosemary sprigs for garnish


COMBINE lemon zest, parsley, garlic, chopped rosemary, and olive oil. Coat the chicken with mixture, and place the whole sprig of rosemary and half the lemon into the cavity of the chicken. Tie the legs of the bird together with butcher’s twine.

PLACE the chicken in a roasting pan and arrange the onion and remaining lemon half around it, sprinkling with the soy and oil.

ROAST chicken in oven for 45 minutes.

ARRANGE the figs around the chicken, and continue to cook for about 30 45 minutes until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 185°F(85°C).

DISCARD the half lemon and rosemary sprig; transfer the chicken, onions, and figs to a platter and serve garnished with fresh rosemary.
