Seriously, who can resist a really good Sunday dinner? And especially a roast chicken? Whenever I think of it, I have a picture of a family cooking together in my mind. There is some loud music, everyone is having fun, the children take care of the veggies, dad prepares the roast (chicken in this case) and mum conducts everything and takes care of the rest. While the roast is in the oven, they play some games and in the afternoon everyone eats together. Everyone tries to eat some dessert as well and in the evening, after dinner, they watch a movie together.
Is this like real life or just some romantic idea of ours?
Of course, it didn’t look that way since we don’t have children, but we prepared everything together and ate together. The best thing about this dish is that you have so many ways to use up scraps. We love to make some caesar salad from the meat left overs of the roast chicken (it doesn’t matter if its breast or something else), the bones we usually use to make a broth. It is very flexible. So you buy 1 thing and get a lot out of it. This is great. There might not be any left-overs from the potatoes, because they are so tasty, you wouldn’t want to leave a rest. So, if you have no idea yet what to cook Sunday, try the roast chicken;)
