Today’s roasted chicken recipe can’t come your way without a story behind it, and oh what a story it is!
Over Christmas break, Matt and I took the Boys to a place called Medieval Times. When I first heard of this place I knew that my kids would love it. My oldest is slightly obsessed with all things Medieval and Greek/Roman. The catch with this dinner show is that your food is served to you with NO utensils! They want to stay true to what a medieval period meal may have been like so that means eating meat, on the bone, with your hands. Well, anyone that knows me knows that is something I don’t enjoy. BUT, I was determined to enjoy this and enjoy it I did. The show was a tad cheesy, the food was actually pretty good and all in all we had a great time. I would highly recommend going at least once.
The funny thing is when I ask my family what they enjoyed the most they say the show of course, but they really liked the CHICKEN that was served. Our “Wench” called it a Baby Dragon, much to Jacob’s chagrin. He is in a real “meat is murder” phase.
So here is a great roasted chicken recipe.
It is super easy and is really good. You could use a whole cut up chicken or 4 chicken quarters. Whatever you prefer.

I’m making this roasted chicken recipe on Sunday, which should please all of my Knights.
