After my most recent trip to wine country with Williams-Sonoma and Fortessa, I vowed to bring back the magic of mealtime…even (and especially) on a weeknight.  As promised yesterday, today we’re bringing you this easy lemony garlic roasted chicken recipe with roasted herbed vegetables recipe to elevate your dinner routine at home, too.

Roasted chicken is easy. It’s not fussy, nor overly complicated to prepare, and it’s always a crowd-pleaser.  Plus it’s one of those recipes that you can easily squeeze three different meals out of.  Aromatic herbs infuse the entire bird and vegetables with rich flavor, making each and every bite juicy and tender. And with the sweet caramelization of the carrots, onions, and herbed potatoes (I never knew a potato I didn’t like, and these are no exception), you have an easy, “one-pot” meal which means clean up is just as easy. Click through below to get the full recipe and tell me Friends, what dishes do you turn to as you plan more time around the table? Truly, MKR

P.S. Here’s a little takeaway when preparing roasted chicken: save the chicken caracas to make homemade chicken broth.  In a large pot simply throw in the chicken caracas, any vegetables you have laying around even vegetable tops (think carrots, onions, leeks, parsnips, etc.), fresh herbs (thyme, parsley, even a little rosemary), salt, pepper, 3 bay leafs and about 4 quarts of water.  Bring to a boil, then immediately reduce to a simmer for 2 hours.  Remove the caracas and any large vegetables, strain out the rest, let cool completely and divide into smaller Ziploc bags and freeze for future use.  Zero waste, and 100% delicious.
