Recipe: Perfect Roast Chicken

Recipe: Perfect Roast Chicken

Nothing will make your house smell quite as delicious as this amazing roast chicken recipe. The chicken comes out juicy, the skin crisp. It’s really one of my favorite things to make. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s super easy, too.

The best part is that this is a meal that keeps on giving. For our little family we are able to  really get a lot of bang for our buck. We’ll enjoy some roast chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and a side or two of veggies the day of, but we’ll also have plenty of meat left over that I can use in soups, fajitas, stir fry, or wherever. I simply shred and freeze the leftover meat.

And then, of course, I can use the frame and organs of the chicken to make nourishing chicken stock. With my crock-pot chicken broth recipe, I’m usually able to stock up my freezer with enough stock to last until we’re ready for another roast chicken. Perfect.

    I adore a good roasted chicken. We do pretty much the same thing as you, and the leftover chicken and broth is such a bonus. I make one about every 2-3 weeks. At least once a month. It certainly helps the food budget. I don’t usually comment, but wanted to tell you I’ve really been enjoying your blog. It’s one that I check frequently. Keep up the good work!
