Roasted Rosemary Lemon Chicken with Potatoes

IMG_5842The nights are chilly and all I want is hot meal in my belly! One of my favorite meals to make on a cold night is roasted chicken. I love roasting chicken with herbs and throwing in whatever I can find in the kitchen.

For this I threw the chicken in along with potatoes, shallots, lemon slices (from his parents’ lemon tree), and a couple sprigs of rosemary from our lovely rosemary plant.

1 hour in the oven and dinner is ready!
