Getting back to basics

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…

    Roasting a chicken is one of those things everyone should be able to do. And the cold left-overs are just as good! Thanks, Melissa.
