Whole Roasted Organic Chicken
A roasted chicken dinner is a perfect nourishing family meal for fall and winter. Serve with Mashed Potatoes, Gluten-Free Gravy, and steamed green beans for a balanced meal. I like to sprinkle the chicken with plenty of unrefined coarse sea salt before baking. This gives the meat a ton of flavor. You won't be consuming all of the salt unless you eat the skin, so don't worry about putting too much on. Sometimes I sprinkle on 1 to 2 tablespoons of dried poultry herbs if fresh herbs are unavailable. Right now I have plenty of herbs growing in my little kitchen herb garden so I used chives, marjoram, and thyme in what you see pictured here. I love adding whole garlic cloves to a roasting chicken. The garlic cooks in its own skin, and when the chicken is done, I remove the whole garlic cloves and serve them in a small bowl that gets passed around. You can squish the roasted garlic out of its skin and spread it onto your chicken slices.
