Roast Chicken with Citrus and Roasted Garlic, Tarragon, and Rosemary
To say life has gotten really hectic lately is such an understatement. But it’s in those extremely busy times that I alway find myself going back to some of my favourite easy dinners. Roast chicken is one of those go-to recipes for busy days. We always buy the biggest chicken we can get so that we only have to cook one but have plenty for 2 lunches the next days as well. The way we cook the chicken changes every time, mainly in terms of seasoning we put on top or the stuffing we put inside. This time we felt like going for a combination of citrus, roast garlic and some basic herbs on top.
We stuffed the chicken with lemon, lime, and oranges and placed the remaining pieces around the chicken in the oven. We also added a whole bulb of garlic which we then used along with all the juices to create an amazing gravy.
