This roasted chicken is an easy go-to recipe that works well any time of year.
Unless you have some vegetarians in the crowd it seems like everyone likes roasted chicken, and you can make this one with parts instead of a whole chicken. It’s less work and you can be sure to have enough of white meat and dark meat to please everyone. A couple of lemons, some fresh garlic, olive oil and your favorite potato is all it takes.
