I am here to tell you that roasting a chicken is not as hard as you may think that it is. If you have a whole chicken, an hour, and a few easy to find veggies (you should have these in your house at all times), you can have yourself an awesome roasted chicken (I am assuming that you have spices in your house). Roasting is a healthy and tasty way to prepare chicken. Ok enough dilly dally, the recipe for tonight’s feast is as follows.
3 – 3.5 lb whole chicken (neck, liver, and gizards discarded…No one really eats that crap anyway) We got ours from EarthFare during a special they were having. Look for prepackaged ones in the deli/meat department.
2 celery stalks
1 T fresh rosemary
1 t taragon (we used dried)
1 t crushed garlic (about 1 clove)
1/2 t lemon juice
1. Position rack in the lower 3rd of the oven and preheat oven to to 400ºF. (more…)
