A Zesty Chicken Dinner Brings Color To Your Plate And Palate
(NAPSA) - The U.S. is wrestling with the worst food inflation in nearly 20 years. Combine that with high gas prices and you're talking about a budget buster.
Vegetable (or canola) oil seals in moisture and keeps chicken and roasting vegetables crispy. The vegetables cook alongside the poultry, saving on cooking time and energy usage.
Preheat oven to 450 F.
Remove giblets and neck from chicken; freeze for future use. Combine and stir sage and ingredients through pepper. Measure out 2 teaspoons herb mixture and mix it with 1 1/2 tablespoons oil. Starting with neck cavity, loosen skin from breast and drumsticks with hands. Rub mixture under skin and over breast and drumsticks. Lift wing tips up and over back; tuck under. Rub 2 tablespoons oil over outside skin of chicken. Place chicken, breast side up, on a roasting pan rack. Roast at 450 F for 20 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 F.
Toss reserved herb mixture and remaining oil with onion, carrots and potatoes. Add vegetable mixture to roasting pan. Roast an additional 30 minutes at 350 F, basting with pan juices after 20 minutes. Add green beans to pan; toss. Cook an additional 10 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 165 F. Remove chicken from pan; let stand 15 minutes before carving.
