On the days when I am just too lazy to cook anything fancy I will just make a roast chicken. To me is comfort food and really simple to make and with the leftovers I can make chicken sandwich or chicken salad the next day. I like adding some vegetables like carrots, peppers, pumpkins, onions and potatoes to the roasting pans.
Get a chicken between 3-4 pound and clean and trim off the fats. Dry the chicken and generously rub it all over with balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika and stuff the cavity with cut onions, orange and thyme and secured the legs with bamboo skewer. Let it marinate a few hours in the fridge.
Cut some carrots, red peppers, pumpkins, onions and potatoes in chunks. Place them in a big baking dish and drizzle with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss it well. Place the marinated chicken on top of the vegetables and drizzle and rub some olive oil on the chicken. Bake in 400 degree F oven for 1 hour 15 minutes or until the thermometer in the thigh reads 170 degree. Remove and let it rest for 15 min before carving it. Enjoy!!!
