Simple Roasted Chicken
I make this and freeze the meat to make meals simpler. Use in chicken salads, soups and more.
dez the bakist
bone in chicken breasts or 4 boneless skinless
carrot, cut into sticks
celery stalks, cut into strips
garlic clove, chopped
black pepper & salt
preheat oven to 400F
I use a cast iron pan but a metal or glass baking dish will work just fine
Drizzle pan with a little olive oil, then lay the carrots, celery and onion on the bottom of the pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the wine here as well.
Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken and then lay on top of the sliced veg in the pan and sprinkle the garlic over and around the chicken.
Bake in the preheated oven starting at 30 mins or until internal temperature of chicken registers at 165 and liquid from chicken runs clear
I like to let the chicken cool a bit and then shred the meat off and save for salads and soups or an easy addition to pastas for dinner.
Store in a reusable resealable bag in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze for a couple months.
