Skillet-Roasted Lemon Chicken

Ina Garten's juicy skillet-roasted chicken tastes even better thanks to the rich and earthy pan juices, a byproduct of the dry white wine, onions, garlic, lemons and herbs that penetrate the chicken as it cooks. After roasting, the lemons turn from bitter to sweet — almost candied — so you can bite right into them.
