  • Roast Chicken Seasoning:

  • 1

    ⁄2 cup kosher salt

    (16 ounce) bottle Italian dressing

Stir together Roast Chicken Seasoning ingredients. Set aside. Place the chicken in a 2 gallon resealable plastic bag. Pour a mixture of the Italian dressing and lemon juice over chicken, turning to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for 3 hours, turning every 30 minutes. Remove chicken from bag and drain.
