Easy Oven Roast Chicken and Potatoes

A nice easy oven roast chicken is one of my favorite things to cook. You enjoy the meal and usually have some left overs to enjoy in other ways. You can chopped up some of the chicken and topped a salad or shred it up and make chicken enchiladas. You can also wrap some of it with some spinach and tomatoes to enjoy an nice easy lunch. The point is that it never goes to waste. This recipe of oven roast chicken and potatoes was especially enjoyable because of the addition of the potatoes. There is something to be said about the deliciousness of roast potatoes, but they deserve a recipe all of their own. This dish makes a great family dinner, but it can also be served to guests. You could serve this with a side vegetable such as peas or corn, or a nice salad for a well rounded meal.

One Pan Cooks All Roast Chicken

The other reason I really enjoyed preparing this meal was the easy clean up, just one pan. I always try to clean up the kitchen as I go along so there is not a lot left to clean after I have eaten. Just as you get all nice and full and that lazy feeling starts to overcome you, you have to get up and clean the kitchen. So not fun! So I do it all before I eat, I promise you will enjoy the meal more knowing that a dirty kitchen is not waiting for you.
