BEST Roasted Chicken (Sara Foster)

Sara Foster is the WOMAN!!! I love this. It will be my go to roast chicken recipe. I may never buy a rotisserie chicken again. This is AMAZING! I really could eat the whole thing. It is juicy and full of flavor!
Make it tonight. Enjoy!

1 whole chicken - about 4 lbs.
6 sprigs marjoram
1 lemon
1/2 onion (depending on the size of your chicken, 1/2 large fit in mine, not the whole thing)
1/4 cup good balsamic vinegar (the flavor is going to concentrate)
1/2 cup apple juice (or dry white wine)
2 tsp olive oil
1 1/2 T italian seasoning

Remove innerds of chicken. Pat dry. Preheat oven to 400. 9x13 pan or roasting pan (w/rack). Stuff sprigs into chicken. With breast side up - squeeze lemon. Stuff lemon and onion into cavity. Mix vinegar and juice (or wine) and pour over top. Rub down with olive oil and italian seasoning. Flip over. Cook for 30 minutes with butt up. Basting some with juices. Flip over and cook for another 40 minutes or until done (depending on the size of your girlie bird).
EAT! This is amazing. I can now throw out every other roasted chicken recipe!
