But, first, let me tell you this,
i have NEVER had a juicier, more tender chicken IN MY LIFE.
This has got to be one of my top 10 favorite recipes for Chicken.
& thats saying a lot .
This smelled wonderful even BEFORE it went into the oven, and dont even get me started on how my kitchen smelled during the roasting.
i would say it was "breathtakingly" amazing, but its quite the opposite,
i found myself doing deep breathing exercises instead! haha
it was such an addicting smell, it has GOT to be illegal to inhale this much good stuff !
But it wasnt just the chicken that was delicious, but the vegetables were SO full of flavor !
i have never enjoyed eating JUST vegetables this much before.
i ate 3 servings of vegetables alone ! and ate 1/4th of the Chicken, hehe
Can you say Happy Stomach ?
Overall, this Roast Chicken was a 10 in my book. AHHH SO GOOD .
But you know what the best part of the day was?
Enjoying my time in the kitchen with my Best-Friend, Tiffany.
Its always fun having someone cooking with you, isnt it? haha
Tiffany and i had a great laugh when it came to her having to stick her hand into the chickens... backside, haha !
BUT it was done for the sake of good food! & Boyyyyyyyyyyyy, was it good !
Oh, and we had fun playing Twister & baking Peanut butter centered chocolate cupcakes as we were waiting for the chicken to cook !
Ugh, i think we're starting to get old, at the tender age of 20.
Tiffany and i were laughing at each others pain during Twister, and then we had to suffer with sore thighs & legs afterwards. Haha !
|Stuffing the Chicken|
Adding my lemon halves & whole garlic bulb inside my
|Sprinkling Chicken Seasoning|
i used Kroger's Chicken Seasoning,
real yum stuff ! i love it!
i even sprinkled some of this on the side of my plate,
and dipped my chicken into it while i was eating.
totally recommended !
After rubbing the lemon, oil, & seasoning~
my poor casserole dish was too small, even though this was
my largest one..
Soooo, i just baked the rest of my veggies in a seperate
baking dish. hehe~
|Sliced Red Onions|
This is how i cut my onions, but i would probably
cut them a bit thicker next time.
They do shrink during the baking process.
|Layering My Vegetables|
i laid out my sauced snow peas & asparagus over the
potatoes that were underneath the chicken.
Layering the thinner veggies at the bottom will help
prevent them from getting burned.
|Ready to Bake !|
This picture was taken right before it was placed in the
oven, for its first 40min cooking.
Along with my extra pan of veggies.
(which were ready to eat after the 40 mins.)
|After 40 mins of Cooking|
After the first 40min. session, Tiffany added the tomatoes
& as we set the timer for another 40mins, we munched
happily on the delicious vegetables .
P.S Thanks Tiffy for being my hand-model, haha
