Roast Chicken Dinner

A recipe for a very easy and delicious chicken dinner.

I know I don’t post dinner recipes very often… okay, never… but even “never” deserves an exception once in a while, right?  I made this super yummy roast chicken the other day, and found myself wishing I had taken pictures of it.  Then I told myself how weird it was that I really regretted not photographing my dinner.  Then I went to the store and bought another chicken so I could do it all over again, with my camera at the ready.

Let me first whet your appetite by telling you that this is the easiest dinner you will ever make.  I. Exaggerate. Not.  It’s also one of my family’s favorite things to eat.  And…?  It makes enough leftovers for sandwiches the following day.  It’s basically the perfect meal.

Roast Chicken Dinner Guest Post

I know I pretty much just post desserts and snacks, but last time I made this dinner, I found myself wishing all evening that I had taken photos of it so I could blog about it.  The family was thrilled to death with the meal, and frankly, so was I.  It was super-duper easy and super-duper delicious.  And I had leftovers.

Fortunately for me, I was asked to guest post today, and I figured it was a perfect excuse to post a dinner recipe.  So, hop on over to MammyMade and find out why this is the single easiest dinner you will ever make.  Seriously.  If I’m lyin’, I’m dyin’.

This recipe is so easy, I actually made my 10-year old daughter make dinner.  I stood right next to her, taking pictures as she worked, and giving little pieces of advice.  She was rather annoyed at me.  “I know how to do it, Mom.”  Remind me to put her in charge of dinner more often.

Girls Night Out: Instructional Chicken Dinner

One of the high points of my life has been working with the youth group at our church.  The girls are fantastic, and so fun!  It has been a couple years since I have been involved with them, and I was missing it.  So, naturally, I was thrilled when they asked me to come teach a class for the girls about cooking.  I wanted to create something they could enjoy, and something they could do easily enough that they could feel confidant cooking it again on their own.

We went to the local high school, since we are fortunate enough to have the home ec. teacher as one of our youth leaders.  We made a very basic dinner: chicken breast, spinach salad, rolls, and dessert.  We dressed up our meal with oranges.  Oranges were present in almost every part of the meal.  We also talked about different ways to dress up something so basic, to make the meal interesting and tasty.  The girls broke into four groups and started cooking.
