THE FASTEST, EASIEST, YUMMYLICIOUS, ROASTED, ONE-PAN, CHICKEN DINNER
Easy, peasy, chicken dinner for two you will totally love and, yes, there are leftovers.
There is nothing quite like – perfectly roasted chicken that is moist and juicy. A gravy that is succulent and tasty. potatoes that are rich and creamy, aided by the earthy taste of the roasted asparagus.
And you will have plenty of chicken left for sandwiches or a nice chicken salad. And don’t throw the chicken carcass out. Make a great broth out of it. It’s simple – all you do is fill a large pot with water, add all the remaining potatoes and asparagus into the pot, all the bones and whatever chicken is left that you won’t use for sandwiches and or a chicken salad, and bring to a boil and then let it simmer for about three hours. When the broth mixture gets low, add more water.
Once the cooking is done, strain the broth and you now a delicious broth that you can use to make another delicious dish – soup.
