Roasted Chicken, Tomatoes and Artichokes

Roasted chicken with artichokes and tomatoes and sauteed cabbage

I make roasted chicken breasts and thighs all the time. Sometimes plain, other times like this recipe. I add mushrooms or make them buffalo style. All are good. I served the artichoke mix on the side to keep the skin crispy. You can serve on a bed of spiralized zucchini or riced cauliflower. I served with a side of cabbage and onion stewed in chicken stock.  It is all good and very easy to make.

I make roasted on the bone chicken all the time; it is foolproof and by varying herbs and a couple ingredients and the sides, it

For this meal, I used fresh rosemary and sage, yellow tomatoes, salt and pepper. Then I steamed haricot verts, sautéed raw sliced almonds in butter until brown and put the beans back into the pan with the almonds.

Because I didn’t add any thickener, I put juice in a ramekin so it doesn’t run all over the plate; it’s just runoff from the meat, tomatoes and spices. Delicious dunking the meat into it!

Roasted Chicken Breast and Squash “Linguini” with Goat Cheese, Artichokes and Basil, and Radishes

Roasted Chicken with Squash “Linguini” and Radishes

This roasted chicken in a variation of one I’ve made many times before. Sometimes I add tomatoes, or olives or keep it plain. It’s tasty and so easy to make. I used to add a bit of extra virgin olive oil, but I find it doesn’t need it. The squash on the side is delicious with the chicken.

I’ve never cooked radishes before, but numerous people have been telling me how good they are, so I gave them a try. The first night they reminded me of a potato, but the second night I undercooked them and didn’t care for the taste. They are worth checking out—just be sure you test them for doneness—they should be soft. Most of the sharpness is cooked out and the texture—when cooked correctly—really is like a potato. The bit of butter at the end really gives it a good flavor. I recommend a cast iron pan to give them a nice browning and not to crowd them—which is what I did the second night.
