Roasted chicken with citrus

Lemon chicken is one of my favorite dishes.  Here is a different recipe that includes other citrus with an equally tasty flavor for dinner. I used two chicken breasts with bones, 2 lemons, 2 tangerines, 3 shallots, red potatoes, lemon zest, rosemary, thyme, Kosher salt, and ground pepper.

Place the chicken in a roaster pan on a wire rack.  Spray with Pam, squeeze a bit of lemon over the chicken, and top with lemon zest, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper to taste. Add 1- 1/2 cups water to the pan under the rack.

Cut the lemons and tangerines in half and place around the chicken.  Peel the shallots and cut in segments and also place around the chicken.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Bake for 60 minutes.  This dish has an excellent citrus taste and is a delightful change to a standard roasted chicken.
