Roast It!

Roast It!

Aug 25, 2017

I usually avoid purchasing any type of chicken that is bone in. I’m not sure why, as my mom cooked whole chickens and as a kid I even ate the chicken liver as a “treat”. I think that is the difference between a kid from the 80’s and now. If I offered my kids a chicken liver as a treat they would run the other way screaming unless it was coated with bread crumbs and resembled a chicken nugget.

It is not lost on me that in my previous blog I also covered chicken, and I apologize to those that eat red meat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I do eat red meat and it usually goes a little something like this:

Back to the chicken: this week I tried out roasted split chicken breast, which I have never made before. I’m not a fan of cutting, touching, or even just looking at raw meat, and especially if there are bones to deal with. BUT this was actually very easy as all I had to do was cut the chicken breasts in half. Even a wimp like me can do that.

Roasting the chicken was it was beyond easy and after shredding the chicken it lasted me for a week worth of meals. A good complimentary side is roasted potatoes. Other than chopping, which takes a few minutes, this was also a quick fix and the seasoning just required items that I always have in my kitchen.

Many people say that baking dinner takes too much time. I think this hour can easily be utilized to actually give you more time in your evening. It gave me a chance to clean up my kitchen and talk to the kids about their day. We can get homework, piano, and drum practice done before dinner and for some reason it seems less hectic and rushed when we can break up the evening rituals before and after eating dinner.

Here is the recipe:

This is a great dinner for leftovers! I had enough remaining to make four lunch containers for work.

I promise this is my last chicken themed blog post for a while. But seriously, who doesn’t love chicken? Next week I will continue to move into more fall themed dishes. It is hard to fathom how close the holidays actually are. All I need to remind me is the barrage of seasonal Halloween stores and candy that are already calling my kids names. 

See you in September,
