Mealthy Tip

Leftover roast chicken is excellent on salads, sandwiches or Asian-inspired lettuce wraps. Save any leftover carrots and potatoes and freeze for vegetable soup or for our glazed-carrots recipe. If you like, you can change the flavor profile of the chicken by using a couple of teaspoons of your choice of spice rub when you add the salt and pepper.

I just bought my first cast iron skillet and couldn't wait to try it out. This roasted chicken was amazing, and it fully exceeded my expectations! The meat was really tender and juicy, and using the cast iron made clean up so simple. Sometimes I take shortcuts on recipes, but you absolutely need the herbs and garlic for this recipe. It really gives it that wow factor.

This cast iron chicken was melt in your mouth delicious. The flavor was incredible, I still can't believe how stuffing a chicken with lemon and herbs makes it taste this amazing. I want to make this every week now!

I get excited whenever I get a chance to break out my cast iron skillet. This recipe provided super flavorful and juicy chicken that my family absolutely loved. I added some Brussel sprouts to the skillet along with the carrots and potatoes.
