A lot of firsts on the blog today! #1– This is my first official MEAT recipe! Meat-eaters rejoice because this organic roasted chicken is perfection!! And, #2– Wolf Gourmet has so kindly offered their Countertop oven up for a giveaway which is at the end of this post. And after using this oven for weeks now, I can honestly say, this is one giveaway you’ll want to enter. The oven is so sophisticated and works like a dream, my two favorite added features are:
I’ve roasted veggies, baked fries, salmon, and cookies all in this baby and its my favorite oven of choice. It’s getting to the point where if something doesn’t fit in it, it just doesn’t get made. It’s called portion control, folks.
Anyway, I’ll stop raving about the oven now and talk about this incredible bird. After visiting France this past summer… seeing lovely roasted chicken everywhere and falling in love with Provençal cooking, which is simple yet comforting all at once, has been quite the inspiration. You can catch me making it rain herbs de Provence all over my kitchen any day of the week.
Rubbing the chicken with herb butter under the skin and keeping just salt and maybe pepper on the top is the only technique I’ll ever need for roasting a chicken again. It’s so easy yet tastes like it took you all day. My husband and I didn’t even get to plate this before it somehow disappeared… hence no real plated shots here, guys. Take the photos yourselves – after you make this. Oh and tag #foodbymars so I get to see. What are you waiting for?!
