Well, it's time to post my second recipe for FFWD. This month we got to choose our recipe order. I chose to do 'roast chicken for les paresseux'. As Dorie explains,"for the lazy". That happens to work very well for me today. I was out most of the day with my girlfriend. We went out this morning for pedicures and then for lunch and a little shopping. The day here in NJ was miserable. Cold (44 degrees), and heavy rains all day. Too cold to be walking around in flip flops…but hey, we just had pedicures done! We happened into a great little store owned by a very artistic lady. She gave us some great advice on where to get some fresh goat chevre. Her shop was filled with a mixture of vintage pieces of jewelry and some very artistic new pieces made by local artists. Then we had lunch at this very quaint and lovely place in town, where we enjoyed quiche and salad. By the time I got home I was chilled to the bone. So this chicken dish sounded soooo good. It filled my home with the aroma and warmth of wonderful herbs. I loved this way of roasting a chicken. It was so moist and the bread sitting at the bottom of the chicken, soaking up all the wonderful juices, was delicious. I added more potatoes and carrots than called for. I like extra veggies. Oh, and the garlic that was roasted with the chicken, all I can say is yum! So far I have made 3 recipes from this book and have not been disappointed yet. This is going to be a great year!
This recipe can be found in Dorie Greenspan's new book "Around my French Table".
