I know, I know, it’s like 100 degrees everywhere and we’re smack-dab in the middle of Summer, but sometimes you just need a recipe for Simple Roasted Chicken & Potatoes. Don’t worry, regular summer programming will continue afterwards. PS: anyone else getting all excited for Amazon Prime Days coming up?! This gal is finally going to get herself some popsicle molds! And a natural light diffuser, because all these sunny days are killing me photography wise. But getting back to it, not matter what the weather is outside, putting a simple, down-home good recipe on the table is sometimes all you need. This Simple Roasted Chicken & Potatoes is just that: simply a roasted chicken and potatoes. No frills here, but honest flavors that make your heart happy.
What’s so great about having these basic, but delicious recipes up your sleeve, is not only can you bring a good, home-cooked meal to the table, but you can also customize it to fit your schedule. Don’t have the time after work to roast the chicken in the oven? That’s ok, you can simply toss it in a slow cooker in the morning, set it on low and forget about it until dinner time. Have some extra veggies laying around that need to get used up? Toss them on in with the potatoes.
Since this recipe has a fantastically simple base flavor, you can easily make it in advance and use it throughout the week as meal prep or to help you get multiple dinners on the table. One night you could turn it into fajitas, or quesadillas, or soup – the possibilities are endless! Plus, leftovers are never a bad thing if you ask me.
