Roasted chicken is one of those dishes that every home cook needs to to master. It is a great recipe to have in your back pocket for everything from weeknight meals to a dinner party.

Superb, a full dinner that looks like it took all day; but didn’t. The best part, it’s delicious. There were no words at dinner because everyone was so busy eating. This is definitely staying in the front of my recipe book.
