Everybody Loves Chicken

Roasting an entire chicken for two people seems a little wasteful for a small household like mine, therefore, I decided to just do two big pieces...

It has to be done... Dinner needs to be served..

Nothing beat the fresh rosemary from my own garden..!
The chicken is sitting on a bed of apples, carrots, onions, cauliflower and an entire head of garlic and basted with lemon and orange juices and fresh rosemary.

The Recipe:

2 pcs Chicken Thighs
3 Peeled Carrots (cut in chunks)
2 bulbs Onions (halves)
1 Green Apple (quartered)
1 head Garlic (halved crosswise)
2 tbspn Olive Oil
1 or 2 sprigs of fresh Rosemary
Lemon and Orange juice
Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Pat the chicken dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange the carrots, onion, apple, garlic, cauliflower around and underneath the chicken. Place the chicken thigh skin side up. Roast the chicken for 1 hour, basting occasionally to prevent the chicken from burning/drying.

Transfer the chicken to a platter. Tent with foil while making the sauce (do not clean the pan). Place the same roasing pan over medium-low heat. Whisk in any remaining broth and simmer until the sauce is reduced, stirring often. Strain.

and.... Dinner is served...!

Our simple dinner last night....
