We love roast chicken. I'm normally not very impressed with chicken breasts, but end up fixing them all the time since they are a good source of lean protein. Roast chicken is a different story. It's always so juicy and tasty, we just devour it. The recipe I chose this time did not disappoint either.
Ina Garten is my favorite "celebrity chef." She has such an easy, relaxed and carefree attitude. Most of her recipes are non-fussy, simple and have few ingredients. Oh, and they are also absolutely delicious. I love The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook and watching her on the Food Network. I chose her Perfect Roast Chicken recipe, which she says is so good she serves it to her husband every Friday night. Well, it turned out so good I think I will have to fix it at least once a month (which is a lot for me since I like to try so many new recipes). Wow! Excellent recipe. I served it with mashed potatoes and wished later that I had just tossed the potatoes in with the rest of the vegetables to roast. Next time I will. And there will be a next time!
I give this recipe 5 stars (on a scale where 1 star = "Yuck!" and 5 stars = "Wow!")
