Roast Chicken. Just the thought of it makes my mouth water. There are a few foods that I truly love, but my all time favorite comfort food is this roasted chicken served with mounds of fluffy mashed potatoes and buttered green beans! Flavorful herbs with both lemon juice and lemon zest season this chicken to succulent perfection. In order to keep this dish moist and juicy, I cut small slits in the chicken skin and stuff small amounts of the blended herbs under the skin which adds both moisture and flavor. I also rub some of the herb/lemon blend inside the cavity, then add half an onion and the empty lemon shells. Talk about flavor city! Lastly, a quick brush with melted butter ensures a crispy, golden skin. I could easily roast a chicken every week! I think one of the reasons I find roast chicken to be such a “comfort” food is that it reminds me of Sunday dinner after church back when I was growing up. Nothing wrong with that memory!
