Every body(well not vegans and vegetarians) likes chicken it seems to stand on neutral ground. Is that why everything is described as tasting like chicken? The current species we know today is a hybrid of the red and grey fowl that were raised thousands of years ago in the Indian subcontinent. I found conflicting information as to who were the first people to domesticate chicken, some say India others China. Chicken meat is inexpensive and one of the most used meats in the world. Did you know that there are more chickens in the world than any other bird?
This recipe uses herbs as the main ingredient giving it a lot of flavor, and it's both juicy and crispy. Mine is always served with fresh baked dinner rolls and available vegetables. The measurements depend on how big the bird is, you'll need enough to coat the entire bird well on both sides. I am using a 1.5 kilo or 3.3 lb chicken.
This is one of the easiest dinners to make and doesn't require to much attention, perfect if you have laundry or like me have ironing to do ( I hate ironing ). Roasted chicken goes well with green beans and mash potatoes (mine are the instant kind, I can't make them from scratch they always turn out bad. Why is it that I have no problem with other more complicated dishes but this I just can't. Anyone have a good recipe? ) Or serve with your favorite veggies. Don't forget the fresh baked rolls, they are yummy.
