Simple roasted chicken = super tasty nice times

Just had an amazing dinner, totally paleo, very little prep time.

I splurged and got the free range, no antibiotic whole chicken (1.99/lb instead of 1.29/lb for the normal chicken).

It. Was. So. Worth. It.

Seriously, we lightly sprayed the chicken with olive oil to get a little but of pepper and herbs to stick, then plopped the sucker down in a roasting pan on top of a layer of cut up parsnips, carrots and celeriac.

The chicken needed almost nothing, it was naturally one of the tastiest chickens I've ever had! The veggies cooked in the chicken's juices and were perfectly tender and tasty!

Protein and vegetables for dinner, just the way my body likes it :)

AND a one pan meal is always super awesome because of the lack of dishwashing! Aaaaand we have delicious leftovers for lunch (I live making a yummy paleo dinner and having it for lunch the next day... Takes a lot of the guesswork out of things... Reduces the chance I'll eat something that isn't quite good for me)

So, yep, just wanted to share that eating right can be simple, tasty and totally awesome :)

No excuses thus holiday season everyone, no excuses!


  1. I LOVE making whole roast chickens in the winter. We've had it twice in the last couple of weeks. If you have a grill, they cook really well there and your oven stays clean (google "beer can chicken"). I wish I were better at carving the poor thing...I really butcher it! We go to Josh's family for Thanksgiving, but I bought a small turkey (12lbs) that I will make for us over the long weekend to feast on + make turkey soup!
