French Fridays With Dorie: Roast Chicken for Les Paresseux

Roast chicken is one of those dishes that I love to make. It makes the house feel warm and smell good, and this is a good recipe for roast chicken. Since I was unwilling to pay though the nose for a chicken, I took advantage of the post Canadian thanksgiving turkey nausea and purchased a young turkey. I rubbed the turkey with a combination of rosemary, sage, and thyme. I also stuffed the cavity with a lemon and served it with roasted local potatoes and carrots tossed with fresh rosemary and a bit of butter, salt and pepper. My only mistake was not doing the deep fried chicken bread. That's okay though, it just gives me an excuse to revisit this gem time and time again.

I should just stop grocery shopping and invite myself over to your place for dinner.

How long did the turkey take? Sounds good!!

The turkey was only 7 pounds, so it took a little over or under two hours, I can't remember.

I'm wishing I had grabbed a turkey after Thanksgiving as well. Can't wait for Christmas, well, except for all the things to do between now and then!

Love that you used a turkey - good to know it works. You must try the bread.
