Simple Roast Chicken for #SundaySupper

I’ve joined the Sunday Supper Movement, a group of bloggers dedicated to bringing back family supper on Sundays. You’ll find some great ideas for family-friendly meals. I urge you to commit to share Sunday Supper at least once a month this year! The best gift we can give our family and friends is to hug, laugh, share our stories, and enjoy great meals together.

roast chickenI’m a rustic cook. I don’t like to fuss much and I favor the simple but fabulous. This is especially evident when I cook a chicken. Butter under the skin? Brining? Trussing? Too involved, and generally not for me. I like a simple approach: shove some herbs and aromatics into the chicken and just roast it. This is one of the easiest things in the world to cook. There’s a little prep, then an hour or so of unattended roasting, giving the cook lots of time to assemble the rest of supper.

farmers marketSimple but fabulous demands good ingredients to start with. I get my chicken right from the farmer at my local farmers’ market, and most of my herbs from the garden patch just outside my kitchen door. Get the best ingredients you can, and your meals will taste their best.

I favor classic combinations. The aromatics I use most often are lemon or onion – both will add moisture and flavor to the chicken. My standby herbs are rosemary, sage, or thyme. Experiment to find your own combinations!
