Basics: Roasted Chicken
The basic roasted chicken from scratch is such an Easy recipe. I love to roast chickens on a Sunday, serve dinner, and then use the leftover meat for sandwiches, enchiladas, burritos, salads, pastas, and anything else I can think of with chicken. The ideas are limitless. I also use the bones to make a broth for Any type of soup! Here’s a link to my Grandma’s amazing chicken soup! This is a great one-pot meal.
