Last nights dinner....Garlic Herb Baked Chicken with Vegetables
We started with a 1.5lb AMISH chicken, wash the bird in cold water, salt and squeeze 2 lemons over the entire bird.Then,lightly flour the bird (this gets all the slime and stench of the chicken.) Rinse the chicken once more.
Add 2-4 TBSP of the following: Salt, Black Pepper, Tarragon, Crushed Rosemary,and Thyme.
1/4 cup Olive Oil (i love Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
Combine all the above and coat the chicken with (don't be shy)
Next, Raise,Peel and cut (byes cut= a cut on an angle) the following vegetables
Green beans, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, celery, onions and mushrooms.
Place the Veggies in a deep tray and add the herbs and spices as above. Also, add 2 TBSP of ginger and vanilla. Mix all the ingredients very well together. Then, place the Chicken over the vegetables and cover with foil.
Bake it at 350 degrees for about an 1-1.5 hours. The last 5-10 mins turn the broiler on HIGH to brown the chicken.
Once its done. Plate the Chicken on a pretty platter surround with the vegetables. chop up some parsley and sparkle over the chicken!
