🔔You can use this recipe for making batches of chicken quarters, thighs and drumsticks too. If you decided to use the same herbs but dried, remember to use just 1 teaspoon for each since dried herbs are more concentrated.

1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease roasting pan with 1 tablespoon of duck fat. Place chicken in roasting pan, trying not to over crowd. Use all of the remaining duck fat on the chicken skin.
2. Season chicken with seasonings, making sure to evenly spread across all pieces.
Sprinkle lemon juice over the chicken. Then top chicken with slices of lemon.
3. Cover the roasting pan with tin foil and bake for 1 hour. After an hour, remove cover, remove lemon from top of chicken. Bake uncovered for 1 more hour.
