Roast chicken is probably the easiest thing in the world to make.
Seriously. It's so simple, it almost embarrasses me that people are so impressed with my roast chicken. It's not impressive. It's chicken.
The best chicken you'll ever eat, and I am being 100% honest there. But still, just chicken.
I came across this article online that was talking about how America is taught we are too stupid to cook. Which, hey, true. We are taught that. Even I- clutz in the kitchen- can cook. And it's just because I try. I never thought I could growing up because I was pretty much told I couldn't by marketing of food companies wanting to promote mixes, meals made fast, faster, fastest, and microwavable dinners.
Don't get me wrong, I love love love a good short cut/cake mix/simple fix. But some of these things are discounting the real simplicity of recipes. Like roast chicken. Recipe below.
