Baking & Roasting My Chicken

My week has been pretty hectic and I’ve been looking for meal ideas that are delicious, but require little prep work. So while at the grocery store when I came across a 6 dollar bird a light bulb went off and I immediately knew what I would be making. Roasted Chicken with potatoes, a “one pot meal” of sorts.

What You Need:

1 Small Whole Chicken

1/2 A head of Cabbage

1 Yellow Bell Pepper

1 Yellow Onion

6 Baby Red Potatoes

1 tablespoon of unsalted butter

2 tablespoons of Chimichurri

2 tablespoon Olive Oil

Salt

1 baking pan

Mrs. Dash

Curry Powder

First preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Wash and cut vegetables and place in baking pan.

Drizzle olive oil over them and add a dash of curry, salt and Mrs. Dash. Toss the vegetables to make sure everything is covered with the oil and seasoning.BC 2

Take the chicken, rinse with water and remove the giblet and other goodies.  Pat dry with paper towels. Place in the pan with the vegetables and rub with the unsalted butter. Follow with the chimichurri and rub all parts of the bird with as much of the sauce as you desire. (You can replace this with the seasoning of your choice). Stuff the bird with some of the potatoes you’ve seasoned.BC 3

Take a piece of aluminum foil and cover the pan. Place in the oven and cook for an 1 hour 20 minutes. 40 minutes into the bake time remove the foil.BC 4

After the the bird has finished baking take it out and enjoy. As you can tell from the picture below I got carried away and forgot to take a picture before i started to serve myself :). Enjoy!!
