Course Main Dish
Meal Dinner
Preparation Method Roasted
Difficulty Easy
IC Diet Scale Bladder Friendly
Keys To Success (1) Do not add too many vegetables as they tend to add too much moisture and make the chicken watery tasting. (2) Cover Pot with Tin Foil and then put Pot Lid on top to seal in the heat and moisture.

Simple whole roast chicken dish that is easy to make, juicy and extremely flavorful.  Best of all, it is very IC Friendly.

The key to the flavor is the cooking technique which helps the chicken retain the moisture and produces a wonderfully flavorful sauce.

It's great when you can find a recipe that is simple and easy, yet tastes great. When the chicken comes out of the oven, it is so moist! And the sauce that is made from the drippings is so rich and flavorful.

It only takes about 15 minutes to prep the chicken and brown it on both side. Then you let the oven do the rest.

This recipe is delicious. It is very moist and juicy. I added several rosemary springs bec we love rosemary. I know they're a lot of IC people that can tolerate onions/garlic but since I can not tolerate onions I substituted 1/4 teaspoon of an Indian spice called Heeng (Asafoetida Powder). It is a stinky spice that helps with digestion and has a similar flavor to garlic/onions. You must fry it in a drop of oil (about 30 seconds) to bloom the spice. I'm not sure about Gloriana's review, I thought we were to review how well the recipes tasted and how bladder friendly it was or was not. In this case it was fancy restaurant quality and with one change was 100% bladder friendly for me. Thanks for the site.

Onion and garlic both contain toxic irritants. They are difficult to digest and irritate the stomach and intestines. Many ICers have difficulty in with digestion and IBS symptoms so you may want to skip those two items.

Also if your experience candida or chronic yeast infections be sure not to eat the skin of the chicken due to the fact that fat causes yeast not sugar. It simply feeds off the sugar in stage 3 of the digestive cycle and multiples.

I would also limit the amount of chicken you eat, it should not be more than the size of your fist, chicken like all meat is very acidic.
