Garlic Roast Chicken with Rosemary and Lemon

For weeks when I know I won’t have a ton of time, I love turning to my Rachel Ray, 30 minute Meals Cookbook! I love making this when I want some flavor and really don’t want to use all the burners on my stove.

I love garlic, rosemary, and lemon. These three items together melt my mouth and it’s such simple seasoning! I roast a full chicken with this combo of seasonings a lot because it’s so good! For this dish, you can use one pan and bake the chicken while you make a side of potatoes and a salad. I made Pesto-mashed Potatoes with this one as a side and a simple Caesar Salad. It all went very well together and again, was easy!

Give it a try and let me know what you guys think!
