This Rosemary Chicken Roast is the Best You’ll Ever Have

Roast chicken is not only an easy dinner to make, but when you cook it with the vegetables in the same pan it's absolutely effortless. This recipe uses the wonderfully aromatic herb rosemary, along with garlic and butter to infuse the chicken and vegetables with amazing flavor.

Once you slip the chicken into the oven, your senses will be treated to the smell of rosemary wafting throughout the house as it mingles with the chicken and transforms it to an outstanding meal. Because it takes a little over two hours to roast, this is the perfect Sunday dinner, roasting slowly in the oven while you relax.

Serve with warm buttered rolls and hot apple pie with ice cream for dessert for a dinner to remember.
