I am always experimenting with different ways to seasoning a fresh chicken. I have several recipes that use this wonderfully versatile main dish, each with a slightly different taste. It honestly amazing me at how many varied tastes you can get from one small chicken.
So for today's variation, I decided to go with a more Italian flavor for the skin coating. The olive oil will serve two purposes; it will adhere the seasoning to the skin and it will replace my typical butter coating for the browning of the meat. I served this with some roasted vegetables and a light pan gravy. The leftovers are great for a simple reheating or for morphing into an entirely different dish, think casserole
. So the next time you are looking for that special Sunday night chicken recipe or entertaining friends, give this easy yet delicious Olive Oil Roasted Chicken a try.
