Sunday Dinner Roast Chicken

Roast chicken is a regular on the Sunday menu in many southern homes. Its super easy, super tasty, and you can make it all in one roasting pan. Your house will smell delicious all afternoon!

Sunday Dinner Roast Chicken

1 whole fryer chicken

2 medium potatoes
1 medium onion
4 ribs celery
several baby carrots
7 cloves garlic
chopped or dried parsley
salt and pepper

Choose a whole fryer chicken. This means that the chicken will be very tender. Open the package, discard the giblets and rinse the outside and cavity thoroughly. Place in a roasting pan.

Chop up your vegetables into bite-sized chunks. Put the vegetables around the chicken in the roasting pan. Put 1 clove garlic, 1 wedge of onion, and 1 celery piece in the cavity of the chicken.

Sprinkle everything with parsley, salt, and pepper generously. Put the lid on the roasting pan and cook at 325 for about 20 - 30 minutes per pound of chicken.

That looks amazing. I don't know why but I haven't roasted in a while. I should because roast chicken is a family favourite here. Thanks for the reminder, and your method looks quick and easy to prepare.

I love roast chicken. It's one of my husband's favorite meals ever and the perfect cure for a bout of homesickness!
