Hi. My name is Lindsay and I have a confession. I don’t really like Turkey. GASP! Did I just say that (type that) out loud? Oh, I think I did. Well, it’s out there. And you know what? My kiwi of a husband doesn’t like turkey (anymore) either. Um, hence this One-Pot Roasted Chicken recipe.
I know, I know. I have some MAJOR explaining to do. But hear me out.
You see, it’s not that I don’t like turkey, I just don’t prefer it by itself. I like it it mixed into dish. But I’d take roasted chicken, sausage, beef, seafood, pork, or eggs ANY DAY over turkey.
And my husband, well, he’s a lamb and beef kind of guy. Plus he got food poisoning from a few Thanksgiving dishes he ate last year. Another reason why he won’t eat pumpkin. Haha, poor guy. Thanksgiving is not a fond memory of his.
That being said, I’m the one who always make another meat or seafood dish to bring to the gathering. Yes, I bring no potato mash (aka parsnip mash), a vegan lentil loaf, a salad, and this year I’ll be making this one pot roasted chicken.
I feel like I’m cheating on turkey, but this roasted chicken is so good and easy to make that we usually eat it once a month. More so during Fall/Winter months, because, let’s face it, using your oven in July in Texas is just torture.
Oh but I digress.. once again. Haha.
So ya, the Cotter’s are not crazy turkey lovers. WHOA! Can you blame us? I mean, do you think the Pilgrims would be upset with chicken?
I don’t think so. In fact, I think they’d be pretty impressed with my orange honey garlic roasted chicken. Fresh squeezed and picked ripe from the vine. And I grew my own garlic! Kidding. Kinda.
But really, the orange honey garlic combo for the chicken is what makes this sauce and what makes this roasted chicken just so succulent (ugh, i hate that word, but it’s true)!
Okay, so think of this way. I’m doing you a favor. You can have your turkey and CHICKEN too! Or you can just save this recipe for post thanksgiving when you are truly sick of turkey. Come one, you know that will happen.
One Pot Roasted chicken –> It’s a WIN WIN!
Are you a Chicken or Turkey person? Cast your votes!
As I run off hiding… the American who doesn’t like roasted turkey (much). Gulp!
Will you forgive me?
Happy Friday Cotter Confessions!
Trying to photograph and make orange brown chicken look pretty is just plain hard. Haha. But trust me, it’s GOOOOOOOOD!
