Are you looking for a new family dinner recipe?! This Rustic Roasted Chicken Recipe is going to be a hit!!
This Rustic Roasted Chicken Recipe is juicy, tender, and packs a punch. A total family favorite! I mean, your kids will be asking you for seconds and you will be making this every week! So easy to make and DELICIOUS! Mmm! Just making this post for you makes me want to go pop this in the oven right now! Plus, there are even more of my favorite Easy Dinner Recipes!
What are your non-negotiable for dinner recipes? I mean the things that a recipe should have if you are going to cook it for dinner? For me a recipe should be easy to make (the easier the better), use as little ingredients as possible (or at least not a crazy number of things and not difficult to find), and it should be incredibly tasty. This is one of those cases where the more flavorful it is, the better.
Actually, I’ve just realized that all my friends want the same things out of their dinners, they want simplicity, easiness, and that delicious factor and if you are on the same bandwagon as we are then this recipe is going to become a favorite.
The reason? Well, this rustic roast chicken checks all the boxes and more because it’s not only delicious but a total crowd favorite as well and it’s not only easy to make, it’s super easy!
Another thing I really love is that the roasted chicken ends up super juicy and tender which was something that I struggled with before (seriously, why is making sure that chicken is fully cooked and juicy at the same time so hard?) but since we are cooking it with cream and stock, it comes out extra juicy!
Add a couple of garlic cloves to the pan while cooking it so the flavors get evenly spread across both the sauce and the chicken. And once it’s ready, serve it with a good garden salad. When a chicken recipe is this good you don’t need a stellar side dish, so stick with something simple and easy and the chicken will shine.
