You may recall a few days ago I was pondering the question of how to make the daily transition from work to home a little smoother. I've been experimenting a little and the most successful strategy was to engage my boys into a little cooking. Enter my sister's roasted chicken recipie, which I will call "Harmony Chicken" from now on. It's simple enough that they can help, and it has veggies, which they ate afterwards!
- 1 whole chicken
- 1 bunch of fresh thyme
- 1 lemon
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 2 tomatoes
- 4 carrots
- 1 white onion
- Heat the oven to 450 degrees
- Coat the chicken with olive oil, a little lemon juice, salt, pepper and a little thyme
- Put the bunch of thyme inside the chicken
- Place the chicken on a roasting pan along with the cut veggies
- Roast chicken for 1 hour
The hour's wait for the chicken to roast arrived with a set of calmer toddlers. We enjoyed a little play time together and set the table, then sat down and had a nice meal as a family. It was lovely.
