Getting back to basics

Sometimes I spend so much time trying to figure out new ways to prepare foods, I forget about the basics.  Like roasted chicken.

There's nothing more convenient than having cooked chicken in the fridge, ready and waiting to be used in so many different ways.  Sandwiches, salads, quesadillas, pasta...plus it makes the house smell amazing!  I may have to start doing this every week...


Basic Roasted Chicken
chicken parts
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Place chicken in a baking pan and drizzle with oil.  Season with salt and pepper and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Indeed, sometimes the ingredient lists can look more like instructions on how to put a bike together then a meal. Sometimes simplicity is what is really needed.

Roasting a chicken is one of those things everyone should be able to do. And the cold left-overs are just as good! Thanks, Melissa.
