Simple Whole Roasted Chicken
The combination of unique ingredients make this chicken dish delicious. It roasts beautifully and is surprisingly fast once it's in the oven. I serve this with the Chimichurri Sauce I found on Allrecipes, and I can't get enough! Plus the leftovers are fantastic for sandwiches, salads, and Mexican dishes. Prep Time: approx.
   15 Minutes. Cook Time: approx. 60 Minutes. Ready in: approx. 1535 minutes .
