IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

Roasted chicken with potatoes.

First of all, simplicity is key in most of my recipes. As a result  a perfect example  is Roasted Chicken with Potatoes.

The preparation is minimal, what there is not to love about that? . The stove is clean. Most of all, the oven does it all.

It is safe to say that we love to eat roast chicken, and I love left overs. Great for school lunchbox, great with salad or in a sourdough roll as a sandwich.

Tonight chicken dinner was perfect. We had homework to do and I did not have to stay in the kitchen to cook, but could sit down with my son and help him. Great bonding time for the two of us.

Toward the end of cooking of the chicken, I simple array of fresh vegetables were placed on a cookie sheet and roasted for 15 to 20 minutes along side the chicken. I used bock Choy, zucchini and carrots. Of course almost any vegetables will do. Make sure that the pieces are all the same size for an even cooking.
