As the cool weather becomes more common, I find myself wanting to sit and sip my tea slowly. The idea of a big extravagant dinner is not always there. Sometimes it is better for the classics. Roasted chicken reminds me of my childhood. For me, it’s hard to beat a nice crunchy piece of chicken skin.
Roasting chicken in the oven is so simple, yet it brings so much flavor. I am a firm believer that roasted chicken should be in every home cooks repertoire. This version has the chicken marinated in lemon, thyme, garlic and whole grain mustard. If you are feeling even more lazy, you can simple sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper and bake! My trick to the super crispy skin is turning up the oven to 425F for the last 5 minutes to really let the skin crisp up.
