Lemon and Herb Roast Chicken with Rosemary Potatoes

As I mentioned in my first official Sunday Night Dinner post, I love cooking a roast chicken on a Sunday just because you have extra time to cook and you are able to enjoy the process. When you smell roast chicken, you just feel like it’s Sunday night dinner. Everyone has a memory of a great roast chicken, and I hope to make it a little bit easier for you to do so. Another easy thing: picking up small potatoes, tossing them in olive oil, sea salt and rosemary, and roasting them. To plate it, put the roast potatoes on the plate and top with the chicken: easy and beautiful. Photos by Christie Graham Photography
