1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 bulb garlic broken into cloves
1 lb. white potatoes, large diced
Steamed broccoli (See earlier recipe blog)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Rinse and pat chicken dry. Set aside.
In a blender or Cuisinart add basil, half of oregano, thyme, and sprig of rosemary, salt and pepper. Pulse a few times to blend then add 2 tbsp. olive oil and continue until fully mixed.
In a roasting pan, (ideally with a rack) spread tomatoes and garlic cloves. Then cover with roasting rack (or lay on top if no rack). Add about 2 cups of water to help steam the bird.
Coat the entire chicken with marinade. Then, stab lemons gently with a knife and fill them into the chicken cavity.
Cook for about 1.5 hours. Check to ensure internal temperature is 160 when removing from oven. It will carry-over cook to 165 while resting on cutting board.
While chicken is in oven, prep potatoes and toss with remaining herbs and oil. Roast in oven for 20-25 mins towards end of cooking chicken. Toss potatoes with tomatoes and garlic in chicken roasting pan right before serving.
Enjoy with steamed broccoli!
Crock Pot Chicken Broth
1 whole chicken carcass
1 large onion, large diced
3 carrots, peeled & large diced
3 stalks of celery harts, large diced
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 gallon water
Add all ingredients to crock pot and set on low for 12-24 hours.
Strain broth saving bones and vegetables for another run if desired. (This is called remoulage which is a fancy French term for re-wetting of the bones).
Use broth as a yummy tea, soup base, or substitute for water in recipes. (Think how awesome your potatoes will taste when cooked in chicken broth!)
