Meal No. 2258: Herb-Roasted Whole Chicken
The weather that hit Winston-Salem over the weekend also stretched up into the Richmond area, where they received about 14 inches of snow. That caused a rescheduling of my Wednesday work with a high school administrative team (we'll do it in January instead) and left me free to make a dinner for five of us on Tuesday night. I did an herb-roasted whole chicken, supplemented by some baked chicken thighs, and offered up Alabama great white sauce to dip it in. I also roasted spiced Yukon gold potato wedges in one pan, and garlic and parmesan asparagus spears in another pan. It all turned out pretty tasty.
