Foods to Ponder

Roast Chicken

I love chicken. Who doesn't (aside from all of you vegetarians/vegans)? It's delicious and incredibly versatile. I have come across hundreds of recipes for chicken...some good...some bad. However, I decided recently to become a much better cook. So I made my first attempt at roasting a chicken myself. 

Who else to turn to but the Barefoot Contessa? Her Lemon and Garlic Roast Chicken seemed really simple on TV and on paper. It is. It took 10-15 minutes to prepare and then just pop it in the oven for an hour and a half. I will say--I left out the bacon portion and didn't do the gravy. I didn't think it was necessary but if you want to try it..go for it. 

Lastly--if you don't have the time just pick up a roaster chicken at your local grocery store. They are amazing, inexpensive, healthy and the quickest dinner you will ever make. It's much better for you than any local takeout and just as easy.
