Rosemary Roast Chicken


You could work all day and not come up with a better chicken dinner.  It is incredibly simple and sumptuous.  A perfectly browned roast chicken with no embellishment.

  1. It is always so interesting to me how your reflections and words of wisdom come to me when I need them most. They have given me such peace. And funny, too, that I just prepared a roast chicken dinner (with oranges and thyme) as we are enjoying a family dinner this evening and all 6 of us are home! As you wrote, we need to take a more proactive approach towards making this happen on a regular basis. As usual, thanks for the reminder and push 🙂
