What’s cooking

Chicken Dinner Dominique Baked Chicken with mashed potatoes and vegetables.

What you will need::

1 Organic Chicken

Olive Oil

A Lemon

An Onion

Fresh Garlic

2-3 cups of chopped veggies I use carrots, squash, and zucchini
Chicken Seasoning: I use a mixture and it’s a little different each time a pinch of this and a pinch of that. Something along the lines of::

1 tbs salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp oregano

A pinch of cayenne pepper

A pinch of basil

Or more…probably more because I like things really spicy. If it smells kinda like baked chicken seasoning then you have a good mixture. You may also just buy premixed poultry seasoning and use 1-4 tbs depending on tastes
Step 1 preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2 cover a baking sheet in aluminum foil.

Step 3 rinse off your chicken with water and pat dry.

Step 4 rub seasoning all over your chicken, don’t forget inside the chicken! I start on the back, then do the inside, then I rub some up under the skin on the breast and also sprinkle on top. Often I will crack some extra fresh black pepper and garlic onto the top. You could also add Parmesan cheese if you wanted to.

Step five place veggies around chicken

Step six drizzle with olive oil

Step seven slice lemons in half. Squeeze juice onto chicken then shove lemons into chicken cavity.

Step 8 quarter onion and fill remaining space in cavity, place onion on chicken.

Step 9 add fresh garlic

Step 10 cover in foil
