Remember my review I did?

I went through this book from front to back and dog-eared many pages. I ended up going with a recipe that I just knew my family would love.
Underneath that beautiful bird is potatoes, leeks and carrots. Boy, was it ever juicy and delicious! I make a lot of chicken around here, especially roasted in the oven, and this is now my favorite way to do it. It is easy to do, takes one pot to cook it all in, and tastes amazing! 
Now I can't wait to get to some more of these pages, and see how great other dishes are. I love this book like I love my meat! Plentiful!

5/5

    1. No, in a casserole pan. One that can be used on the stove and in the oven.

  2. My father was a butcher so I grew up with meat of all kinds being the main thing for dinner. I would love to check this cookbook out and learn some new ways to cook the different cuts.

  3. Hadn't thought of that, but the placing the chicken over the veggies is definitely a great way for the juices to flavor the veggies. I'm going to try it. What spices did you use for the chicken - looks yummy.

    1. Salt, pepper, a sprig of thyme and a bay leaf. Butter the whole outside of the chicken.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
