I hope you’ve all been well during my extremely long hiatus! First of all we’ve been moving into our new home (which we’re loving), and second we just got all our utilities hooked up today. Yikes!
With that being said i’ve been cooking ALOT this past week and was able to have my camera handy for all of it. I’ll be posting a few delicious recipes this coming week. I wanted to share this awesome chicken recipe I came up with for you guys! I stumbled upon this super cool roasting dish at World Market. It’s made specifically for roasting a whole chicken and has a little dish in the center that you can fill with a liquid of your choice in order to ensure you get the juciest roast chicken known to man! In my case I chose wine (naturally), and it was wonderful! Enjoy!
P.s- the roasting dish cost $19 🙂
1 Whole “fryer” chicken (it means that it’s been cleaned out ;))
1 stick of butter
zest of two lemons
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 cup of white wine (sauvignon blanc in my case)
salt and pepper to taste
Potatoes and Carrots (enough to coat the bottom of the dish)
Make sure your chicken is completely dry (simply pat with paper towel). In a bowl combine room temperature butter, chopped fresh rosemary, garlic, lemon zest and salt. Mix together. This creates a yummy spread/coating for the chicken. Fill the center of the dish with the 1 cup of wine and place the cavity of the chicken over top so that it sits upright. Rub the mixture all over the chicken using your hands (its going to be messy!). In another bowl coat your chopped carrots and potatoes with a tiny bit of olive oil and fresh ground black pepper. Place the chicken and veggies in a 425 degree oven for about an hour or until golden brown. Eat to your hearts content. Enjoy!!!
