[PCOS Food Friday] Rosemary Roast Chicken

Welcome to Food Friday! This week’s PCOS Friendly recipe is:
Rosemary Roast Chicken

Active time: 15 mins
Total time: 3 hrs


  • 8 pounds whole chicken
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 bunch rosemary
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt, plus more to taste
  • ground black pepper, to taste

*Always use organic and unsweetened ingredients whenever possible.


  1. The night before, remove chicken from freezer and defrost in a sink or large bowl of cool water.
  2. 1 hour before dinner, preheat the oven to 375F.
  3. Remove chicken from package, remove giblet bag from chicken cavity, rinse well, and pat dry.
  4. Place chicken in a shallow baking dish with legs under.
  5. Slice lemon in half and shove the halves and half of the rosemary into the chicken cavity.
  6. Rub the softened oil over chicken skin.
  7. Chop the remaining rosemary. Sprinkle chicken generously with sea salt, pepper and rosemary.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes, then using tongs and/or potholders, gently flip the chicken so that the legs are up.
  9. Sprinkle the flip side of the chicken with the rest of the rosemary and additional salt and pepper, and bake for a total time of 20 minutes per pound. The chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted into the leg or inner thigh (avoiding the bone) reads 165F and the skin is nicely browned and crisp.
