Sometimes I spend so much time trying to figure out new ways to prepare foods, I forget about the basics. Like roasted chicken.
There’s nothing more convenient than having cooked chicken in the fridge, ready and waiting to be used in so many different ways. Sandwiches, salads, quesadillas, pasta…plus it makes the house smell amazing! I may have to start doing this every week…
Basic Roasted Chicken
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place chicken in a baking pan and drizzle with oil. Season with salt and pepper and bake for 35-40 minutes.
