Our Sunday Roasted Chicken --- going into the oven
We had a lazy Sunday ---just like we like them. And finally -- there was a little sunshine. So, even though it was cold, we went out for an afternoon walk, just to get some fresh air after being cooped up all week.
At the farmer's market the prior day -- it's indoors during the winter at the Corning Visitor's center --- we bought a free-range chicken to roast.
It wasn't pretty but it was tasty!Also, I elevated the chicken on a wire rack underneath to keep the skin as crispy as I could. You could add potatoes or substitute potatoes for the apples. You could skip it if you don't like sage. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes before carving.
It was a nice way to end our Sunday, and now have plenty of leftovers for the week.
