I first made this chicken when Isabel posted it after the first event with The Mom 100 Cookbook: 100 Recipes Every Mom Needs in Her Back Pocket . I love roasted chicken because I make them into a one dish meal. Throw a few veggies and starches in with the chicken and everything is ready for the table at the same time. Not to mention the leftovers. Who doesn’t like leftover chicken? We use it in everything whether I need a quick chicken, pasta, and pesto dinner the following night or wraps for lunch. Leftover chicken is about the best leftover there is.
