Hello everyone. So for here in Augusta school starts tomorrow and even though its hotter than a firecracker out there, we know that its not going to last much longer. So I have a recipe that I am sure most of you have on hand this is just the way I do it.
We are making roasted chicken the mishmawsh way lol.
A roasting chicken 4-5 pounds depending on how many people your feeding. (cleaned rinsed out and dried off with paper towels)
A lemon or an orange
Poultry herbs like rosemary, sage and tyme
4 cloves of garlic
1 large onion
extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
4 stalks of celery
A Large roasting pan
onion and garlic powder
After you clean and rinse and dry your bird put him on a plate and layer your roasting pan with the carrots and celery. Your creating a rack to put your chicken on or if you have a rack you can use that too.
Then you want to rub the chicken with extra virgin olive oil be very generous with this. Next you want to salt and pepper your chicken liberally, inside and out and then stuff the chicken with the lemon or orange and the herbs, garlic and onions.
Next you want to mix your onion and garlic powder and italian seasoning together and rub it generously all over the chicken. Pre heat your oven to 350 and bake for about 3-4 hours . I use a meat thermometer, I stick it in between the breast and the leg of the chicken and when it reads 180 degrees its done.
Sure it may be easier to go to the grocery store and get a all ready made roasted chicken but sometimes to make it ourselves and be creative with it is a lot more fun. Its a lot less expensive too. I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe and have fun with it in the process. Until we chat tomorrow I hope you all live, laugh and love today.
