- 1 onion, cut into pieces
- 2 lemons, cut into pieces
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Remove chicken from brine and rinse.
- Place chicken breast down into roasting pan and pat dry inside and out.
- Fill insides with lemon and onion pieces, sprinkle any extras around chicken.
- Rub chicken with oil then sprinkle with paprika.
