For some reason, and I don’t think that I’m alone, I had always thought that roasting a whole chicken was difficult. I thought that it was time consuming and something to only be attempted on the weekend.

It turns out that I was wrong. A roasted chicken is actually the easiest, most delicious dish…and healthy too!

I think, the thing that makes this a really great week night meal, is that you can use a D’Artagnan Whole Chicken, that is already cleaned, trussed and ready to pop in the pan. Add some garlic and fresh herbs…which I have gotten into the habit of having on hand, and roast in the oven while you help the kids with homework!

Once the chicken is in the oven, you don’t need to touch it for fifty minutes to one hour. This gives you plenty of time…to focus your attention elsewhere, whip up some sautéed mushrooms and cook up some rice. Presto! Healthy dinner….and yep, the kids will eat it:)
