Roasted Chicken

So, I’ve admitted it: cooking is not my forte. But I do now enjoy it, especially if I’m able to harvest the ingredients from my garden.

I’d like to share another favorite recipe that I make weekly. It is easy and cheap and nutritious. Everyone loves it (as did my family, until I started to make it week after week). This one also makes our house smell amazing!
Roasted Chicken
Buy a whole chicken and stuff it with parsley and thyme or whatever you have growing in your garden. I have used garlic and rosemary. Next, coat it with olive oil or butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then surround the chicken with vegetables. I include whatever veggies I have growing or in my pantry. I prefer potatoes, carrots, and leeks, but last night it was potatoes, carrots, red onion, and celery. Add a little white wine and water and cook at 450 for about 1 hour.
Then, whatever does not get eaten can be cooked the next day in a chicken noodle soup. I am making that right now and praying it gets rid of my oldest child’s nasty cold and cough. Dr. Oz says it will help 🙂  IMG_5673
