family style whole roasted chicken

A Graham family favorite because it doesn't take much effort and tastes great. We love to roast chicken and vegetables. The whole house smells delicious and we can help the kids with home work and do anything we need to do while the food cooks itself.

Roasted Whole Chicken with vegetables

Olive oil all over chicken

salt pepper

oregano, garlic/onion powder, marjoram

stuff with fresh herbs from garden (thyme, green onions, rosemary, lavender)

cover with foil and place in oven at 375

After about 30 minutes take foil off so chicken will be golden on top

Roasting Vegetables in the same pan or another pan

zucchini, sweet potato, fingerling potato, onion, celery, carrots, brussel sprouts are all great. Just use what ever you have.

olive oil, salt, pepper

I always put a butternut squash in too. My kids love it! I just cut it in half, scoop out seeds, olive oil, and place in pan skin side up. that's it!

In about 45 minutes to an hour when chicken is golden, veggies are roasted and butternut squash is soft enough to get a fork through it you have a really nice home cooked meal.

-TIP- if butternut squash is too hard to cut just put it whole in the oven then cut it in half when it is done cooking
