Tonight ended up actually being a combination of 2 meals we had planned for this week as we were asked to go to dinner at a friend's house on Wednesday. That actually worked out pretty well as I think we all would've been pretty hungry still had we just had the original meal I planned! The Bright boys know how to put down some food....
First up, Lemon Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Red Skinned Potatoes
First I washed the potatoes, super important step since you don't know who/what has touched them before you.
Next I chopped the potatoes, and half of an onion, drizzled about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and zested a lemon over them.
I placed it all in the bottom of my roasting pan & placed the rack on top.
Next I prepped the ingredients to stuff the chicken. I quartered the remaining half of the onion, halved 2 lemons & pulled out the rest of the pack of Rosemary I had purchased.
I stuffed as much of it as I could into the chicken (all but one lemon) and squeezed the remaining lemon onto the potatoes and the top of the chicken. (If this is your first time working with a whole chicken, please be sure to pull out the bag of giblets :) )
This was placed into a 475 degree oven for an hour and here is the final product! Just make sure to remove all of the insides before carving it.
The final potatoes & onions, delish!
