Herb and Apple Roasted Chicken

Gord went to Hamilton and saw Flags of our Fathers with his son, Ken ... they gave it 5 out of 10. Apparently it is a good idea but not well put together.

I stayed home, watched movies and knitted.

And I made supper. New recipe!! I made Herb and Apple Roasted Chicken.

1 whole chicken
1 apple, cored and quartered
1 bunch thyme
4 sprigs tarragon
4 to 6 cloves garlic

Stuff chicken with apple, thyme, tarragon and garlic. Truss chicken and place in roasting plan. Brush with mustard and sprinkle with thyme and season.



Roast at 375C for 1 hour and 20 minutes.

I made roasted potatoes too. Marinade potatoes in olive oil, lemon, pepper and rosemary. And then bake with the chicken.

Recommended wine: Chardonnary

It was very tender and tasty! I'd definitely make it again!

Oh and Joey wanted to watch that movie. It looks really good from what I've seen on the commercials. That sucks it's not that good.

Looks great! But how do I know it really tasted great. It think you should send me the entire meal overnight FEDEX so I can judge for myself. haha!

Oh, alright, I'll take your word for it.
