For The Love of Roast Chicken

Roast Chicken

When people find out that I cook (a lot) or that I do recipe development, one of the first questions they ask is, “What is your signature dish?”  A close second being, “What is your favorite thing to cook?”

This always left me stumped and scrambling for answer because the truth is that I like to cook all the things.  I don’t have a signature dish or a cuisine that I like to focus on.  I enjoy it all.

However, this week, I realized that probably my favorite thing to make is a roast chicken.  There is something very elegant and classy about a great roast chicken.  It also looks fancy even though it’s so easy to make.

I try to roast a chicken once a week and usually on Friday evenings.  That’s my idea of a great Friday night.  In my jammies, a chicken roasting away in the oven, and sipping on a glass of wine while I prep veggies and the side dishes.

That’s how I like to unwind after a long work week.  I don’t want to go out or really interact too much with others.  I want time to relax in my own space making a great dinner.

So I guess the next time someone asks me what my favorite thing to make is, my answer will be a lovely roast chicken.
