Roast Chicken for Les Paresseux: Week Six
I guess I could be considered a lazy girl when it comes to one pot meals. Not only are they easy to put together but the clean up is an added benefit. This was Dorie's pick for week six with our group French Fridays with Dorie so unfortunately I can not post the recipe. It is fairly self explanatory if you look at the picture...
I guess I could say I have made a rendition of this recipe probably once a month for as long as I can remember... but there is one sneaky little secret with this recipe that was new to me. You lay slices of dense baguette in the pan under the chicken which after cooking come out crispy and rich from all the juices and gravy from the bird. I have to say I like these as much as I like the skin of my Thanksgiving turkey ( and that is saying a lot!!). Those little gems are worth lining up for.
I added plenty of veggies and white wine to the pot, tucked some sage leaves under the skin and we were good to go. The chicken was moist and fabulous. The skin was crispy. The vegetables very tasty. All in all a great meal for a busy Saturday. Makes the house smell luscious when you return from a day of play or come in from a long day of working in the yard.
Mon Dieu !!!This was good.
You have to love those lazy Frenchies.. I guess I can say that because I'm one of them.
