In reminiscence of my stay in Kazakhstan

Lemon Chicken

First we went to the 24h open Market in Astana and got a lot of delicious things and then we made this Lemon chicken...
1. You need a fresh chicken, some herbs (like thyme, sage, rosmarin...what ever you like), one organic lemon, olive oil...potatoes, 2-3 onions, salt, pepper and paprika.
2. Preheat the oven to 180 C.
3. First cut herbs and mix them up with some butter. With your fingers divide the skin from the meat of the chicken and place your butter mixture under the skin.
4. With a fork or a fine knive make some holes in the lemon before you put it in the middle of the chicken (as you can see it on the picture).  
5. Rub the skin of the chicken with a mixture of olive oil, salt, pepper and paprikaspice.
6. Cut the potatoes into wedges (it is not necessary to peel the potatoes) as well as the onions and the peeled butternut squash. 
7. Drizzle a oven tray with enough olive oil and put the onions, potatoes, butternutsquash on it. Season with some coarsely minced herbs, salt and pepper. Than put the prepared chicken on it. 
8. Place the tray in the oven for about 50 minutes (depends on the size of your chicken). After 20 minutes turn the chicken to get it well roasted on each side.. 
And then enjoy it with a good glass of wine and good friends...
