Sunday Dinner: Rosemary-Garlic Roast Chicken
Two of my favorite Rs? Roast chicken—and Rosemary! Roast chicken is one of those super-homey flavors that I crave when it’s coolish outside, and rosemary, well, need I say more? What I like about a Sunday dinner of roast chicken is that I can put it in the oven and pretty much leave it until it’s done. (Luckily my home office is next to my kitchen—so I can always check on it, and I can enjoy the gorgeous aromas that waft towards me during roasting time.) Yesterday I served it with pasta topped with roasted eggplant-tomato and pepper sauce (will share soon!). I paired both with a kumquat and toasted pine nut, citrus vinaigrette-topped leafy green salad (and a cool Pinot Grigio—that Dad picked!). Accolades from the crowd!
