Everyone has their favorite roast chicken recipe and this one happens to be mine, so I thought I would share. I roast a chicken once a week and it never lasts long enough. Just like my daughter did at his age, my son loves it fresh out of the oven. I love having it for sandwiches for myself and the kids for lunch or playdates. Sometimes it's dinner, freshly carved on a warm croissant with some mustard, pesto, arugula and lately, some tomatoes. The only caveat is I always get my meat from my local halal butcher because it is, by far, the freshest meat available, in my opinion. I have him cut a whole chicken in half and that is how I roast it.
